Gov. Tony Evers has now been in office for a year, with a pair of State of the State addresses under his belt.

That makes it a good time to check in on a few of the promises Evers made on the campaign trail.

As a reminder, we rate results and not intent. So the Democratic governor will be assessed based on what he has gotten through the Republican-controlled Legislature, not just what he proposed. Our three latest updates:

Prohibit businesses from asking applicants about criminal histories

Create ‘blue-ribbon’ panel on agriculture, rural issues

Assure high-speed broadband access to all homes, businesses
