Common Sense Solutions

As governor, Tony Evers has delivered common sense solutions to the challenges facing our state. By bringing Republicans and Democrats together, he has helped keep Wisconsin’s economy strong, with a record surplus and historically low unemployment, while also signing historic tax relief for working families.

Today, Wisconsin’s economy is booming and stronger than it was when Gov. Evers took office just three years ago:

  • Low Unemployment: Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is historically low and one of the lowest in the nation.
  • Record Surplus: Wisconsin’s projected surplus is $3.8 billion, the highest amount in the state’s history. Gov. Evers has proposed returning surplus funds back to taxpayers, including a $150 tax rebate to every Wisconsinite.
  • Growing Rainy Day Fund: Gov. Evers has grown the state’s rainy day fund to five times higher than when he took office. Today, it’s at its highest level in state history, ensuring the state can address any future challenges.

Wisconsin’s success is a result of Gov. Evers doing the right thing to support the heart of Wisconsin’s economy.

When he ran for governor in 2018, he promised to cut taxes for working families by 10 percent. Today, he’s exceeded that and most Wisconsinites are seeing a 15 percent income tax cut as a result. Combined with tax cuts for small businesses, Gov. Evers has authorized $4 billion in tax relief in his first term.
