Gov. Tony Evers wants to indefinitely delay closing the state's troubled juvenile prison, spend nearly $200 million more on replacement facilities and increase the age for charging juveniles as adults from 17 to 18.

Evers' on Wednesday released an outline of his juvenile justice plans, which were to be included in the proposed state budget he was expected to release Thursday.

The measures would have to be approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature. While some of Evers' juvenile justice ideas have had bipartisan support in the past, they've also drawn criticism from Republicans and will likely face opposition when proposed as part of the state budget.

"I've said all along that criminal justice reform is an area where Republicans and Democrats should be able to work together," Evers said in a statement. "That starts with our juvenile justice system and making sure that our kids are safe and have a chance to be rehabilitated so they can get back into our communities and be successful."
