Wisconsin Lawmakers Claimed $1.25M In Daily Allowances During 2019 Budget Year

The latest numbers from members of the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate show claims of more than one-point-two million dollars in daily allowances.

That is a drop of six percent. Daily allowances are reimbursements from the state for expenses lawmakers accrue while working in the state Capitol. The money represents the time when the Republican-controlled Legislature debated and passed a state budget. It also covers the first year with Democratic Governor Tony Evers in office.
