MADISON – Representative Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement on today’s revenue estimates:

“Today’s revenue estimates show that Wisconsin’s economy is getting back on track under the strong leadership of President Joe Biden and Governor Tony Evers. Last year, direct payments to individuals kept our economy afloat, and today we are seeing the positive economic impact of additional stimulus funds. The head of the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau put it explicitly: ‘The primary factor in the increased estimates is the American Rescue Plan Act…” 

“For months, legislative Republicans have taken action that would undermine Wisconsin’s economic recovery, from gutting education funding and putting $1.5 billion in federal education funds at risk, to trying to eliminate the federal UI supplement. But now is not the time to halt the investments driving our success. There is no excuse for Wisconsin to skimp on core investments that benefit our state, drive our economy and create opportunity for Wisconsin. We must keep our foot on the gas, fund the priorities and investments in Gov. Evers’ Badger Bounceback Budget, and continue moving Wisconsin’s economic recovery forward.”
