MADISON, Wis. — Last night, Governor Tony Evers delivered his State of the State address and declared that Wisconsin is stronger and better than it was when he took office.
Gov. Evers outlined how his administration is strengthening our economy and fighting to help our state keep moving forward. He also called on the legislature to act on the state’s projected historic budget surplus and return a portion of the money to working families to help them address rising costs, expand child care opportunities, and fill jobs.
Here’s what Wisconsinites are watching:
WFRV: “Gov. Tony Evers wants $150 back in the pocket of every Wisconsinite. He used his election year State of the State address tonight to challenge Republicans who say his plan is dead on arrival. The governor called that baloney considering the suffering of inflation and he’s proposing a special session to get it done.”
WKOW: “Today, lawmakers are in the spotlight after Gov. Tony Evers called on them in his fourth State of the State address. The governor wants them to immediately take up his plan to spend about half of the state’s projected surplus.”
WKBT: “Gov. Tony Evers says he wants to send $150 to each taxpayer in Wisconsin, one of the many priorities the governor laid out during last night’s State of the State address.”
WQOW: “Tonight’s speech came with a message: sometimes things don’t go as planned. But it also came with several promises. Tomorrow, Evers says he will sign an executive order calling for a special session to take up his surplus plan. One that would address rising costs caused by inflation and supply shortages.”
WISC: “In 4th annual address, Evers touts accomplishments.”
