MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers wants to spend $109 million to help University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire officials replace their science building.

Evers announced Thursday he’ll include the funding in his capital budget proposal.

The money would go to help UW-Eau Claire replace Phillips Hall with a new science and health sciences building. The project is a collaboration with Mayo Clinic. The clinic’s researchers would work alongside UW-Eau Claire students and faculty.
