Wisconsin Local Government Aid

Speaker of the Wisconsin Assembly Robin Vos speaks during a news conference after Gov. Tony Evers delivered his state budget address at the Wisconsin Capitol in Madison, Wis., Feb. 15, 2023. The Wisconsin Assembly planned to vote Wednesday, May 17, on a Republican-authored plan to increase state aid to local governments, despite not having reached agreement with the GOP-controlled Senate and in the face of a veto threat from Evers.

MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Tony Evers said Wednesday that he and Republicans who control the Legislature are working toward a bipartisan compromise on a bill that would increase funding for local governments, a measure that the Democrat promised to veto as originally introduced.

The Assembly was slated to vote on the measure Wednesday afternoon, despite ongoing negotiations and no announcement of an agreement with Evers or the Senate. Evers said he expected negotiations to continue for weeks.
