Senate will attempt to override Governor Evers’ veto that raised per pupil revenue limits for the next 402 years

This Thursday, the GOP led Senate will attempt to override some of Governor Evers’ partial vetoes used in the 2023-25 Budget. One of the partial vetoes under threat was used to raise per pupil revenue limits by $325 annually for the next 402 years. 

In Wisconsin, it takes a 2/3rds supermajority in both the Assembly and Senate to override a veto. Currently the GOP holds a 2/3rds supermajority in the Senate, but are just shy of that benchmark in the Assembly. In order to override the veto in the Assembly, Republicans would need Democratic support or a small number of Democratic lawmakers to be absent during the vote.
