MADISON (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers' two-year state budget will include $43 million in spending designed to help the state's rural economy, he announced Friday.

Evers, a Democrat, submits his budget to the Republican-controlled Legislature on Feb. 16, which will take the next several months rewriting it before passing their version sometime in the summer.
