WisEye Morning Minute: Restoring Legislature's Control of Federal Funds

  • 0

Ahead of the Senate Committee on Financial Institutions and Revenue hearing, GOP legislators held a news conference to address a constitutional amendment that would prevent future governors from spending federal funds without input from the Legislature. As reported by, the office of co-sponsor Sen. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) said the amendment isn't meant to impact federal ARPA funds, which must be used by the end of 2024. Kooyenga's office said it is intended to address any future streams of federal money similar to the federal COVID-19 packages. His office was unaware of any current federal revenue streams that would be impacted. The amendment would have to pass both houses of the Legislature in back-to-back sessions before going to voters in a referendum. The earliest that could happen for either amendment would be the spring elections of 2023.
