Gov. Evers' budget includes $163 million for new state office building in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- In Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers' newly released capitol budget proposal, Evers says he wants to spend more than $2 billion dollars on building projects across the state in the next two years. 

Of the nearly 2.4 billion dollar proposed, one billion will be used for UW system projects.

The State Building Commission is slated to vote on the budget next month.

The governor's capital budget also includes $163 million for a new state office building in Milwaukee.

It would be at 27th and Wisconsin on the city's west side.

The office would consolidate state agency functions under one roof. It would also include a parking structure.

If it is approved, the proposal says the new building would spark economic growth in the neighborhood.
