Evers’ $83.5 billion budget increases total spending nearly 10 percent from his predecessor’s last budget proposal and includes a barrage of measures embraced by liberals nationwide. The governor’s plan also would seek to fund what Democrats have criticized as long-neglected areas, such as funding for the state’s roads and public schools.
