Wisconsin Governor uses veto power to boost public school funding for the next 400 years

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has utilized his partial veto authority to boost funding for public schools in the state for the next 400 years.

Through his veto power, Evers increased the amount of money K-12 schools can raise per student by $325 per year until the year 2425, surpassing the spending levels set by the state’s Republican-controlled Legislature.

Evers clarified that he did not veto the entire budget because doing so would mean abandoning priorities and ideas he has advocated for. This is the second time he has used veto authority to increase funding for public schools, and previous Wisconsin governors, both Republicans and Democrats, have also exercised this power in the past.
