State Money + Local Funding = Political Bargaining

State Money + Local Funding = Political Bargaining

Wisconsin’s governor is reminding everyone that he has a say in the plan to send more money to local governments across the state.

Governor Tony Evers told Milwaukee TV station TMJ4 yesterday that he hasn’t signed-off on anything yet. Assembly Republicans last week unveiled a plan to send a half-billion dollars more to local governments, and allow Milwaukee and Milwaukee County to raise their sales taxes. The new money comes with a lot of strings, however. The governor will have to sign into law whatever lawmakers agree on. Democrats at the Wisconsin Capitol want to see more money sent to local governments, but they are skeptical of the strings that Assembly Republicans want to include.
