[Madison, WI]  Following today’s State of the State address by Governor Tony Evers, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“Thanks to the last eight years of Republican leadership, Governor Evers is inheriting a state that is strong. Our unemployment rate has been below 3 percent for 11 months straight, our budget has a surplus, our pension system is fully funded, and last budget we were able to invest more actual dollars in schools than ever before. Wisconsin is thriving.

“Moving forward, Senate Republicans will work to make sure that these results are protected for the next generation, and that our prosperity can continue for years to come. We will fight to lower taxes on hard-working families, keep our state open for business, and make sure that Wisconsin is the best place in the nation to work, live, and raise a family.”

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.
