Promises made, promises kept: Gov. Evers signs Wisconsin’s 2019-21 Biennial Budget into law Evers’ budget includes largest general school aid and special education increases in a decade, increases revenue to fix our roads for the first time in a generation, provides 10 percent tax cut for Wisconsin’s working families Gov. Tony Evers today signed the 2019-21 state biennial budget, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 9, into law with partial vetoes. “While this budget makes critical investments in areas that were included in The People’s Budget, this is a down payment on the progress we must make in the next biennial budget,” said Gov. Evers. “Vetoing this budget would have meant passing up the opportunity to provide investments in special education, the largest general school aid increase in a decade, increased revenue to fix our roads, and critical investments in broadband expansion, Wisconsin shares, child welfare, rural hospitals, and transit, among other important priorities. “When I ran for this office, I said it was time for a change. And I made promises to the people of Wisconsin,” Gov. Evers continued. “I promised I would put people first, and that is why I am proud we were able to do as much as we did with the budget we were given. “This budget delivers on many of the important promises I made to the people of Wisconsin and makes

progress toward fixing our roads, supporting schools, increasing funding for healthcare, and cutting taxes for working families.” Highlights from Gov. Evers’ 2019-21 budget include: Healthy Communities In recognition of the direct care workforce shortages in the state, this budget provides over $230 million to support workers who provide direct care to Wisconsin’s most vulnerable citizens in Family Care, nursing homes, and individuals receiving personal care services. Makes important investments in Wisconsin’s rural healthcare providers by increasing funding by $9.9 million for the Rural Critical Care Hospital Supplement. Invests $14.2 million in lead testing and abatement and begins to address the issue of childhood lead poisoning. Provides nearly $30 million, the largest state-funded increase ever, to support programs for Wisconsin veterans. Safe and Just Communities Increases the private bar rate for the Office of the State Public Defender, for the first time since 1992, from $40 per hour to $70 per hour to provide our citizens with prompt representation and save our counties money. Provides over 60 new full-time

assistant district attorneys across the state, which is the first time the state has created any new full-time GPR-funded positions since 2007. Provides funding to work towards meeting the state’s obligations to close Lincoln Hills and Copper Lake schools and moving youth into the least restrictive appropriate setting as soon as practicable. What’s Best for Kids Doubles state support for school mental health programs over the biennium to provide increased access to professionals to assist children in our schools in need. Provides nearly $330 million, the largest nominal dollar increase in state general aid since the 2005-07 biennium. Increases state special education categorical aid funding for the first time since 2008-09 by providing over $95 million over the biennium in additional state support. Through the veto process, increases per pupil state categorical aids by nearly $100 million over the biennium. Increases high cost transportation aid for rural districts by $1.6 million over the biennium to raise reimbursement rates to 90 percent of eligible costs. Higher Education and Workforce Increases state general aid for

the Wisconsin Technical College System by $25 million, the largest nominal increase since at least 1993. Commits over $1 billion in bonding authority, the largest nominal increase ever, to modernize aging University of Wisconsin buildings and improve learning environments, which will help the system attract and retain students, faculty, and researchers. Provides $45 million over the biennium to the University of Wisconsin (UW) System for capacity building initiatives, while continuing to freeze resident undergraduate tuition to keep higher education affordable and mitigate student debt. Agriculture, Tourism, and Economic Development Provides $48 million throughout the biennium, the largest amount ever, to expand the Broadband Expansion Grant program to reach more underserved areas of the state. Recognizes that the dairy industry is a critical part of our state’s economy, which is why this budget invests $8.8 million over the biennium in a Dairy Innovation Hub at the University of Wisconsin System. Provides $750,000 annually for farmers to engage in best management practices under the producer led watershed protection grant pro-

gram. Invests $100,000 to further research on chronic wasting disease in our state. Transportation Provides more than $465 million overall for transportation projects across the state and makes significant progress towards sustainable funding for transportation with the largest dedication of new, ongoing revenue to the transportation fund in a generation. Invests more ongoing revenue than ever before in our transportation infrastructure, while at the same time maintaining bonding at our lowest level in the last 20 years. Invests $320 million in additional funding for our State Highway Rehabilitation program Provides an historic 10 percent increase ($66 million over the biennium) in available funding for general transportation aids, paid to counties, towns, villages, and cities. Finishes off the Zoo Interchange project as it was designed. Tax Fairness Along with AB 251, a bipartisan proposal, provides $518 million in individual income tax relief in the form of income tax rate reductions targeting lower and middle income earners.

Green County Fair • July 17-21 2600 Tenth Street • Monroe, WI

Kroeze brings a touch of fame to the fair Runner up on ‘The Voice’ has been on tour in his home state


When country singer Chris Kroeze finished as the runner up on NBC’s The Voice last fall, he said it didn’t change much in his life. “It’s a lot more people at the shows, which is cool, but I’m not really more busy, it’s just a different kind of busy,” Kroeze said. “I’m more in the public eye than I’ve ever been before, and people recogzine me when I’m out. If we’re going to Walmart as a family, there’s a good chance we’re taking pictures with somebody, but it’s fine, a little different, but OK.” Kroeze and his newfound fame will be the headline act at this year’s Green County Fair in Monroe. He scheduled to perform Saturday, July 20, at 8 p.m. at the Colony Brands Grandstand. The Green County Singer-Songwriter Contest winner will open the show with a set at 7:30 p.m. Kroeze said his path to “The Voice” was interesting as he wasn’t the one who sought it out. “I didn’t go an audition anywhere for it,” he said. “Some friends of mine sent in videos to the show and submitted me that way. After that, I got a phone call inviting me out to the blind auditions in LA.” For Kroeze, it was an experience of a lifetime. “It was super cool,” he said. “Just super, super fun in crazy town USA, LA. The coolest experience I’ve ever had in my life. I can’t complain about any of it, but I’m glad it’s over.” Kroeze credits his success on the show with his willingness to listen and learn. “It’s a situation where you have to go in with an open mind and just trust the process. Of course there are always things you can’t prepare for, but you just have to work with it. It was fun and I met a lot of great peo-

ple and I learned a lot.” Giving back Kroeze is from Barron, where he lives with his wife, Mara, and his 2-year-old son, Fynlee, and 9-yearold stepdaughter, Bella. He said he’s just a “regular guy” who has been lucky in his career. “I’m a pretty normal, small-town guy with a family and music is my job. I’m one of the lucky ones, I get to do what I love for a living,” he said. One of the things Kroeze said he appreciates with his newfound fame, is the expanded ability to give back to the community. He’s made seven trips to the Middle East to perform for U.S. troops in the past three years. “It’s a lot of fun and super rewarding,” he said. “What better people to go support and the fact they let us fly over there and go on base and tour, it’s really cool and I really enjoy it.” “One of our main goals when we come to town to do a show is to find a way to give back,” Kroeze said. “We want to do something to benefit the town, raise funds for something that’s local. “We’re supporting the FFA anywhere we can, it’s just a cool organization that I feel good about getting behind. It’s a good way to give back and raise awareness for something you don’t hear about much anymore. I believe there’s no better place to stick money than in our youth and their future.” A bit of history Kroeze released his first album in February, titled “Chris Kroeze.” “Yeah, we thought long and hard on the title for that, you know you want something catchy,” he said with a laugh. Kroeze has been playing guitar and singing since he was about 6 years old, he said. “Early in life, struggling to focus

and control an ‘excessive’ amount of energy, Kroeze’s father gave him a guitar for his 6th birthday. It was that day that his musical journey started as he seemed to connect deeply to something special, and zero his attention and energy into his music. From the first time he stepped on stage at his sixth grade talent show, he was hooked,” his website states. “I grew up listening to classic county, classic rock and southern rock so the stuff I do generally

comes out pretty country,” he said. His song, “Human” made the top 5 country songs on the iTunes Top 100. According to his website, Kroeze performs more than 200 shows a year across the United States and internationally. “It keeps me busy,” he said. “But it’s a lot of fun.” For his full schedule and more information, visit www. 76984
