MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address on the capital budget and how his Badger Bounceback agenda will help Wisconsinites bounce back from this pandemic.
Hi Wisconsin, Governor Tony Evers here.
Last month, I announced my Badger Bounceback agenda, which included our capital budget that will make significant investments in state infrastructure across Wisconsin.
I’m proud capital budget is one of the strongest investments to date in Wisconsin’s state facility infrastructure and economic recovery.
It includes a $2.38 billion investment that would provide approximately 29,000 family-supporting jobs and an estimated overall $4.3 billion economic impact. From investments in our UW system campuses, protecting our natural resources and state parks and forests, to taking care of our veterans at our Veterans Homes, we know that Wisconsinites across our state will feel the economic impact of this budget, which includes projects in 31 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties.
As we work to recover from this pandemic, these investments will be critically important in helping our economy and our state bounce back from this pandemic stronger than we were before this pandemic hit.
But at the end of the day, our Badger Bounceback agenda won’t be possible without you. You can help make sure we bounce back from this pandemic by contacting your legislator. Go to legis.wisconsin.gov and find your legislator’s contact information and ask them to support our Badger Bounceback agenda so we can get past this pandemic and bounce back, together.
