Lawmakers Not Budgeting For Compromise

Lawmakers Not Budgeting For Compromise

Wisconsin’s governor says he won’t sign anything that’d send more money to local governments unless Republicans at the State Capitol add more money to the mix.

Governor Tony Evers yesterday threatened to veto the Republicans’ shared revenue plan because he says ‘it’s not enough.’ The governor also wants Republican lawmakers to lift the spending restrictions and requirements that the plan would impose on local governments. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said the plan at the statehouse is something that the voters of the state support, and says it’s disappointing that the governor is threatening to stop it from becoming law.
