MADISON- Following Governor Walker’s State of the State address this afternoon, State Representative Mark Spreitzer (D-Beloit) released the following statement:

“Wisconsin needs fresh ideas, but the Governor’s speech fell short on bold reform. Even after six years as Governor with total Republican control of the Legislature, he still has no answer on how we fill the gaping holes in our transportation infrastructure. After three of his budgets, Wisconsin still has no clear path forward on how we ensure a quality public education for every student in this state.

“After six years under Governor Walker, our economy and tax system have become increasingly rigged against working families, our university system has been vilified and choked financially, and seniors and the less fortunate among us have lived under constant fear that their safety net will be yanked out from under them. Wisconsin can and must do better.”
