Evers Proposes to Triple Capital Budget and Fund it with Debt

Because, of course he does.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has requested more than $2.5 billion in his two-year building projects capital budget, with close to half of the proposed money going to upgrades and renovations at University of Wisconsin System facilities.

The 2019-21 capital request is about three times larger than the $803 million requested by former Republican Gov. Scott Walker in his 2017-19 capital budget request.

About $2 billion of Evers’ request would come from state taxpayer-supported borrowing.

    UW Oshkosh and UW Oshkosh Organization desperately need that money … for … the students. Fucking Evers.

    By all means, let’s build a bunch of college(s)!!

    Student numbers rapidly declining over the next 10 years, but that’s not relevant!

    And why should Illinois be the only Midwestern state to go BK on too much debt?

    I’d be curious how much of that goes into Madison. I got up to $800 million or so before I got bored.

  4. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    no Fiscal sanity at all.

    Assembly will have to be voice of reason.
