MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today after the Legislative Fiscal Bureau released new revenue projections for the state:
“With new revenue projections, there can be no more excuses for the Republicans’ continued lack of funding for the education of our public school children and job training for our workers. Last budget Republicans cut public schools by $1.6 billion. With new revenue projections they can undo some of the damage they did to our public school classrooms and job training for our workers at our technical colleges and other vital training programs.”
