Governor Announces Additional Agency Budget Cuts

By John Forester | July 22, 2020

From The Wheeler Report . . . 

Governor Evers announced he has directed the Department of Administration to work with agencies to identify another $250 million in cost savings for FY20-21. The cuts are needed to offset the impact of Covid-19 on Wisconsin’s economy. Evers said, “All state and local governments are now experiencing the difficult balance of providing vital services to residents in crisis while also managing tough fiscal realities. While I am still hopeful that the federal government will adopt further bipartisan proposals to stabilize funding for state and local services, in the face of continued inaction and uncertainty, the unfortunate reality is that we must take these steps and make more significant cuts.”
