MADISON, WI – Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement after Senate Republicans voted on a spending plan that eliminates funding for Democratic priorities to invest in schools, roads and communities while further protecting tax giveaways for millionaires:

“Wisconsin’s working families have made it clear they want real solutions for tax relief, not political posturing. Governor Evers is listening to the wishes of Wisconsin residents and proposing a state budget that will include real tax relief for hard-working families. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans opted for an irresponsible spending plan that isn’t paid for, creates a greater deficit, and protects tax giveaways for individuals making more than a million dollars per year.”
