Gov. Evers Vetoes Spending Bills

Governor Tony Evers vetoes several bills that would have controlled how the state could use funding from the American Rescue Plan. 

The governor says the Republican legislature is committed to spending just 200-million-dollars to help small businesses, while he has allocated 600-million-dollars to help small businesses recover from the pandemic.  Evers today announced the state will award up to 420-million-dollars to small businesses affected by the pandemic, which will help about 84-thousand small businesses.  Each will be eligible for grant awards of five-thousand-dollars.
