- Governor Tony Evers wants to increase two clean water programs in the state by almost a combined $18-million over the next two years.
The clean water fund program is currently authorized to borrow a little over $3 billion.
Evers is hoping to increase that by almost $14 million.
The safe drinking water program borrows a little over $71 million, and the governor wants to increase that by almost $4 million.
The Joint Finance Committee is scheduled consider the proposal Tuesday.
