Evers Unveils Plan for Spending $1 Billion to Fight Covid-19

MADISON, WI (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers on Tuesday unveiled his plan for spending $1 billion in federal funds to combat COVID-19 in Wisconsin. The money will be used to fund ongoing virus testing efforts, conduct contact tracing, purchase supplies, provide resources, and prepare for a surge. The spending plan comes a day after Evers dropped plans to work with the state Legislature to pass a new statewide rule to slow the spread of the virus. There is no statewide “safer at home” order after the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck it down last week, leaving a patchwork of local restrictions.
