Milwaukee will get new — and apparently symbolic — restrictions on funding its streetcar and its neighborhood business districts, under the state budget signed into law Thursday.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker declined Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett's request to veto those provisions, along with one that nearly doubles Marquette University's amount of property tax-exempt land.
Walker's list of 99 vetoes of the 2017-'19 budget didn't include the items Barrett requested. Walker's spokesman didn't respond immediately to a request for information about the reasons the governor declined to veto the items.
