The state of our state is strong. Republican-backed reforms continue to fuel our state’s economy and have our state budget in the best shape in decades.

Tonight, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers delivered his annual State of the State Address. Following the speech, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald joined other Republican members of the Legislature in reacting to the governor’s remarks:

“During his first year in office, Governor Evers pushed a liberal agenda that taxed too much, spent too much, and would have undone a large number of reforms that turned Wisconsin’s economy around. I’ve been proud to stand with my conservative colleagues in the Senate in opposition to his left-leaning policies.

“It is my hope that the governor will spend what is left of the legislative session to focus on issues that put Wisconsin families first. I’m eager to hear his plans for helping agriculture in Wisconsin. Additionally, the Senate will continue our efforts to crack down on repeat violent criminals, and work on a tax cut for hard-working Wisconsinites.”

“Over the last decade, Wisconsin has made tremendous strides. The state of our state is strong. Republican-backed reforms continue to fuel our state’s economy and have our state budget in the best shape in decades. I am confident that we will continue to move Wisconsin forward.”
