The Wisconsin Assembly and Senate both signed off on a spending plan for 2019-21 this week, sending the Legislature's version of the budget to Gov. Tony Evers' desk.

Cap Times political reporter Briana Reilly joined Jessie this week to break down how the budget came together, how it differs from what Evers proposed in February and what his options are for approving, rejecting or modifying it.
