Isn’t this just good government? Why would we ever allow a single person to have sole discretion to spend BILLIONS of dollars?
One of the bills, from Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu, would give the powerful Joint Finance Committee the ability to review Evers’ plan for spending federal COVID dollars.
“More money is flowing into the state than was increased in our last budget,” said LeMahieu, R-Oostburg. “So we feel it’s important to have legislative input into the process to give our say, to represent our areas of the state, our constituents, and give that oversight.”
