(MADISON) – Today, the State Senate approved the controversial Walker budget with bipartisan opposition. Following her vote against the budget, ranking Senate Democrat on the state budget committee, Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement:

“I wish I could say this long budget nightmare is over. Except, it’s only just beginning. The negative ramifications of this budget will live on in Wisconsin for years to come. Governor Walker put the needs of his presidential campaign ahead of the needs of Wisconsin. In doing so, he divested from public education, put our transportation infrastructure at risk and continued his abysmal record of failing to create the jobs he promised Wisconsin during his first term.”
