MADISON – Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement regarding the 2015-17 state budget bill that has been proposed by Senate Republicans:

“Wisconsin is home to almost six million people, but legislative Republicans carefully crafted this budget to benefit one person who just so happens to be running for president. Rather than selling out Wisconsin to advance Gov. Walker’s presidential ambitions, we need to work together to lift up all families and move our state forward.

“While parents and families have said they want education to be a top priority for our state, Legislative Republicans continue to cut our schools and waste hundreds of millions on tax breaks for special interests. It’s time to put Wisconsin families first, restore the cuts to our schools and invest in the future of our state.”
