MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Democratic Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers is making a plea for bipartisanship in his state budget proposal. The plan he unveiled Wednesday includes a new paid family leave program for most public and private-sector workers, tax cuts for the middle class and a plan to keep the Milwaukee Brewers in their stadium until at least 2043. Republicans have promised to ditch most of what he’s asking for and start from scratch. That means Evers’ ideas like legalizing marijuana, spending $2.6 billion more on K-12 schools and automatic voter registration will almost certainly be jettisoned. But both sides say they want to cut taxes.
