Local reaction to Evers budget

Governor Evers announced his budget for the state on Thursday and there are mixed reactions in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Evers introduced the budget proposal Thursday night in the state Assembly chambers. Some of the major issues are raising the minimum wage, lowering penalties for marijuana possession and raising the gas tax. Will Gregory, the chairman of the Democratic Party of Door County, is excited for some of the changes that he hopes will come to the state.

 

 

Ron Heuer, the chairman of the Republican Party of Kewaunee County, says that Evers' budget is “insane.”

 

 

Many of the new provisions will have to pass the Republican-controlled state Legislature before becoming law.
