(MADISON) – Governor Scott Walker delivered his state budget address this afternoon at the Wisconsin State Capitol. Senator Lena C. Taylor (D-Milwaukee) offered the following remarks:

“Governor Walker has punted the ball on governing since his first day as Milwaukee County Executive. He’s so focused on campaigning that he produces irresponsible budgets and leaves the real work for others. This budget is based on fake math. It’s so bad that even Republicans aren’t rushing to defend it. I look forward to working with my fellow Democrats in the Joint Finance Committee to find solutions to the crises Governor Walker ignored, like juvenile corrections, transportation infrastructure, student loan debt, and redirecting the pipeline from prison to college.”
