Push For Over-Ride

The majority leader of the Wisconsin Assembly is pushing for the override of three partial budget vetoes by Governor Tony Evers. Jim Steineke sent a letter to Assembly members Wednesday, but his job isn’t going to be an easy one. Democratic Minority Leader Gordon Hintz has warned no members of his party will vote for the overrides. With a 19-to-14 edge in the chamber, Steineke needs three Democrats to switch sides. Two of the vetoes blocked spending on a northern Wisconsin regional crisis center and additional funding for doctors who care for patients in state health-care programs.
