MADISON – Today Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement on the Bucks Arena package unveiled today:
“I was not at the table for these negotiations so I’m looking forward to learning the full details of the Bucks arena financing plan. I will be carefully reviewing the details and having discussions with our caucus in the days ahead.
“The unfortunate part of this situation is that Republicans have led our state into a fiscal mess that makes all our budgeting decisions more difficult. If Republicans had made better financial decisions like reclaiming our federal health care money, then our state wouldn’t be feeling this painful squeeze and would be more able to invest in such priorities as public schools, our universities and major projects.”
