Joint Finance Committee strips Medicaid expansion, marijuana legalization

Governor Tony Evers will have to wait for another day to see if some of his proposals will be passed by the Wisconsin Legislature. The Joint Finance Committee eliminated some items proposed by the governor in his budget, including expanding Medicaid, legalizing medical marijuana, and capping school choice enrollment. Speaking last week after marijuana-related proposals were rumored to likely get axed from the budge, State Senator Andre Jacque says it was likely because it was not considered a fiscal item.

State Senator Dave Hansen predicted after last month’s JFC hearing that this draft would get rejected. He thinks it is likely Governor Evers will veto a lot of what he sees from a Republican-produced budget.

Members of the Wisconsin Legislature return to the floor on Tuesday.
