Governor Tony Evers is:
DELIVERING $1 BILLION IN TAX RELIEF
During his first term, Governor Evers delivered on his promise to lower taxes for working families, providing over half a billion dollars in tax relief in his first budget. Now, to help Wisconsin small businesses bounce back, he has signed a $450 million small business tax cut and additional relief for low-income families.
FIXING THE FOXCONN DEAL
After years of broken promises, the governor was able to renegotiate Scott Walker’s failed agreement with Foxconn. Governor Evers’ leadership will save taxpayers $2.77 billion while protecting the existing investments that have been made in the project.
INVESTING IN ROADS
Governor Evers promised to fix Wisconsin’s aging infrastructure, and he’s already making historic investments to make it happen. His first budget included nearly a half-billion dollars in transportation funding, and even during the pandemic hundreds of road improvement projects were moving forward, some under budget and ahead of schedule.
PULLED WISCONSIN OUT OF SCOTT WALKER’S LAWSUIT AGAINST OBAMACARE
On day one, my administration pulled Wisconsin out of the Republican-led lawsuit that sought to end Obamacare and protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.
CREATED BLUE RIBBON PANEL ON AGRICULTURE AND RURAL ISSUES
In January 2020, Governor Evers announced the creation of both the Office of Rural Prosperity at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and a Blue Ribbon Commission on Rural Prosperity. The Commission’s focus is to center rural voices in developing long-term strategies on how we can best support the needs of rural Wisconsinites and rural communities.
