(La Crosse, WI) — Local governments across Wisconsin are, once again, pressing for more state money. The League of Wisconsin Municipalities yesterday said many cities in the state are looking at local funding shortfalls. The League says if lawmakers don’t increase the state’s shared revenue, they will be forced to ask voters for local tax increases. The League’s president said Wisconsin has a ‘broken system of funding local government.’ State lawmakers have opposed giving cities and counties more state money, saying many communities don’t spend what they have responsibly.
