WI Budget Battle Continues

WI Budget Battle Continues

Wisconsin’s new state budget doesn’t spend as much as Governor Evers wants, but it does spend more.

The state Assembly approved the 87-and-a-half billion-dollar, two-year state budget. That’s far less than the governor wanted, but it is about four-and-a-half-billion-dollars more than the current state budget.

Republicans say the new spending plan cuts taxes by about a thousand-dollars for the average family, and it sends more money to schools. Democratic lawmakers say it doesn’t send enough money to schools and doesn’t expand BadgerCare to more people.
