Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers is calling on state lawmakers to give their bipartisan support to what he is calling his “bounce back” plan. Evers revealed more details of his 91-billion dollar, two-year spending package during a Tuesday recorded message. The Democrat says he thinks a budget can be passed that makes sure Wisconsin is better than it was before the pandemic hit. Evers previously released parts of his plan, including the legalization of marijuana, letting local governments raise their sales tax to ease the reliance on property taxes, expanding Medicaid, creating a 100-million-dollar venture capital fund and taking steps to make prescription drugs more affordable. He also wants to increase funding for schools by one-point-six billion dollars.
