MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Assembly Republicans sent Gov. Tony Evers a list of priorities for the nearly $2 billion in federal assistance coming to Wisconsin from the CARES Act.

The letter asks the governor to make hospitals and healthcare facilities priorities.

It also has safeguards for business owners and workers, as well as asking for assistance for local governments.

The letter asked Evers’ administration to be mindful of spending decisions.

Assembly Republicans are also asking the governor to allow Easter or Passover services as local places of worship.

The letter was delivered to Evers’ office Friday.
