WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) -- Governor Tony Evers made a stop in Wausau on Wednesday to listen to the concerns of the Hmong community.

The roundtable was held at the Hmong American Center in Wausau and was open to the public. More than a dozen people attended and they hope the Governor will add additional funding to the budget especially in healthcare.

"The Hmong community understands it is about connecting the dots. It is about housing, economic development, healthcare and education. We just can't focus on one thing," said Democratic Governor Tony Evers.

Evers said he thinks it is a good time to talk about these issues because of the funding he is asking for in the new budget.

The new budget goes into effect July 1.
