Shared Revenue Plan Unveiled

Shared Revenue Plan Unveiled

The plan from Wisconsin Republicans to send a half-billion dollars more to local governments has been unveiled, and now the political tug-of-war can begin. 

Republicans in the State Assembly last night approved their shared revenue plan, despite the fact the Senate Republicans and  Governor Tony Evers are not fully on-board.  Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he’s done negotiating on the plan.  The governor said earlier in the day that he was ‘optimistic’ about the negotiations.  The plan approved by the Assembly last night made a few changes, including increasing the amount of money for local governments, changing some of the requirements for local advisory referendum questions, and giving local public health managers a bit more power in emergency situations. 

The plan could change some more once state senators take it up next.
