Assembly approves budget bill, advances to Gov. Evers’ desk

by | Jun 30, 2023 | Legislative Update Blog, State Budget

The Assembly late last evening approved the $98.7 billion two-year state budget on a 63-34 party line vote. As with the Senate, no changes were made as all Democrat amendments were rejected and the bill now heads to Gov. Evers for potential vetoes. The governor can veto the entire budget (an outcome considered unlikely) or use line-item partial vetoes to change certain provisions, but cannot add additional spending.

The governor has hinted he will look for vetoes related to cuts to the UW System and tax cuts for higher wage earners.
