We shouldn’t have to wait long to see what Wisconsin’s governor does with the new state budget.
Governor Evers’ office says the governor could act on the budget as early as this week. State lawmakers finalized the new two-year, 99 billion-dollar spending plan last week. It includes 10 billion-dollars in new spending, but also includes a four billion-dollar tax cut, and a 32 million-dollar cut for the University of Wisconsin. The governor doesn’t like either of those pieces, and has talked about vetoing them out of the budget. The governor last week said he was looking at as many partial vetoes as he could get away with.
