LFB: State would miss $2.2 billion in K-12 aid if full budget vetoed

Wisconsin wouldn't qualify for some $2.2 billion in federal aid for K-12 education if Gov. Tony Evers vetoed the GOP-authored budget in full and Capitol leaders failed to pass a new one, the Legislative Fiscal Bureau says.
The LFB memo underscores the risk some insiders have raised for Evers if he chose to veto the budget now before the state Legislature. Republicans have already signaled they wouldn’t come back to pass a new budget. Some also have said they could point to the veto and blame Evers for the state failing to qualify for the money under the last two COVID-19 stimulus packages.
