(MADISON) – Today, the Joint Committee on Finance took its final vote on Governor Scott Walker’s state budget. After the vote, ranking Senate Democrat and long-time budget committee member, Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement:

“From the day Governor Walker introduced his budget, it was clear he was more focused on Republican primary voters than the people of Wisconsin. I believe our job is to serve our constituents, not our own self interests. But this budget is dishonest and lacks transparency.

“As human beings, we have a moral obligation to care for those least fortunate among us. As legislators, we have a fiduciary responsibility to invest in the growth of our society. And as public servants, we have a duty to listen to and serve our constituents. This budget fails on all accounts. Instead, we are left with a budget shrouded in errors, secrecy and power grabs.”
