Budget Vetoes 

Last week Governor Evers signed into law the 2019-21 state budget. In the process, the Governor modified or deleted 78 provisions in the budget passed by the legislature.  

I was deeply concerned that Governor Evers chose to use his veto pen in ways that will negatively impact rural and outstate areas of Wisconsin. 

Of particular concern was his veto of $15 million from the transportation local road aids. This is money that would have gone to help fix local roads that have become a serious problem. He also removed restrictions for the money can go, meaning money that was meant to be allocated for Central and Northern Wisconsin may now be redirected to projects in Madison and Milwaukee.

Governor Evers also vetoed the allocation of addition assistant district attorney positions to Wood and Marathon counties. This means that those positions may end up in other parts of the state as well.

Summer is in full swing! The Department of Natural Resources has a Get Outdoors event calendar to help you plan your next outdoor adventure this summer. Additionally, the August 1st application deadline is approaching for trappers and hunters who wish to pursue bobcat, fisher, and river otter this fall.  

Road Construction

Work began earlier this week affecting the I-39 northbound off-ramp at Maple Ridge Road and the northbound lanes of I-39 over Bull Junior Creek. The Department of Transportation will be working to apply a skid-resistant surface coating to the existing concrete pavement. Driving delays and detours will be expected throughout the project which is scheduled for completion by July 26th, 2019. The Village of Kronenwetter has a map and brief overview posted on their Facebook page.
