Gov. Evers’ Statement on Republicans’ Failed Veto Overrides
"Republicans are clearly more interested in playing politics than getting anything done for the people of our state..."
MADISON — Wisconsin Assembly Republicans today attempted to override three of Gov. Tony Evers‘ line-item vetoes in the 2019-21 biennial budget. Gov. Evers released the following statement in response:
“Republicans are clearly more interested in playing politics than getting anything done for the people of our state—it started with the lame-duck session, then it was changing the constitution, then it was ignoring farmers and rejecting a cabinet appointee for the first time in Wisconsin modern history, and today it’s trying to override vetoes that happened months ago.
It’s time for Republicans to get over the election that happened more than a year ago so we can work together on the pressing issues facing our state.”
