From The Wheeler Report…

In May, Governor Evers announce that DOA in partnership with other state agencies were able to identify $70 million in cost savings in state operations which would come as 2019-20 budget reductions. The Governor then announced in July that he would be seeing additional cuts to state spending with a target of $250 million in savings. Today, DOA and the Governor announced they were able to find more than $300 million in savings to return to the general fund.

The table below shows the reductions made as announced by agency.
