MADISON, Wis. — Today, Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin praises the Wisconsin State Assembly for passing a fiscally responsible budget that includes prevailing wage repeal for local governments and will cut taxes for Wisconsinites across the state. Staff and volunteers from AFP’s Wisconsin chapter have worked tirelessly for months to raise awareness on possible savings that could be realized by repealing the prevailing wage and have been among the state’s strongest advocates for free market reforms.

Eric Bott, state director of Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin, had the following to say:

“The Wisconsin legislature should be congratulated on passing three budgets in a row without any increase in the income or property tax. Thanks to their hard work, Wisconsin families and small businesses across the state will be keeping more of their hard-earned paychecks.”

“This year, parents will finally have the freedom to choose the best school for their individual child’s needs, and most importantly, the state remains on a fiscally responsible track by repealing prevailing wage for local governments.”

“We thank Representatives Hutton and Jacque for their continued leadership in the Assembly. Our activists across the state look forward to Governor Walker signing the budget this week.”
