Legislature Sends Budget to Evers


MADISON – Assembly lawmakers late Thursday sent to Gov. Tony Evers a $99 billion two-year spending plan that leverages a historic surplus to cut income taxes by more than $3 billion for Wisconsin residents.


The action now shifts to Evers, and the Democratic governor has promised to deploy his powerful veto authority over aspects of the Republican-authored spending plan.


Assembly lawmakers voted 63-34 along party lines to pass the 2023-25 state budget, which includes a $1 billion increase in state and local funding for K-12 schools, a $32 million cut to diversity programs at the University of Wisconsin System, higher fees for electric vehicle owners, and pay boosts for state employees and correctional officers.
