#LocalGovMatters – Review of Governor’s Budget

This week Gwyn is joined by League of Wisconsin Municipalities Executive Director Jerry Deschane and Wisconsin Counties Association Government Affairs Director Kyle Christianson to discuss Governor Evers 2019-21 Executive Budget Proposal.

Kyle and Jerry talk about the Governor’s proposal on transportation. Both agreed that it’s a good proposal to start on and ultimately believe that there will be changes and compromise before a complete transportation budget is complete.

The three moved on to Shared Revenue and what Governor Evers proposed as an increase to the program. Jerry highlighted that Evers proposed increasing Shared Revenue and creating a levy limit floor of 2% (This was discussed in the previous podcast).

Kyle explains the juvenile justice proposal and how that impacts the counties. Both Jerry and Kyle discuss the proposal to move 17-year-olds to the juvenile justice system.
