[Madison, WI]  Today Governor Walker delivered his 2017 State of the State Address to the Wisconsin Legislature. Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“Today’s address demonstrated Governor Walker’s continued commitment to the conservative principles that have defined Wisconsin under Republican leadership. Over the last three legislative sessions, we have balanced the budget, lowered the tax burden on Wisconsin’s residents by nearly five billion dollars, and ensured that Wisconsin has the lowest unemployment rate in fifteen years with a higher percentage of people working than nearly every other state in the nation.

As the Governor iterated in today’s remarks: we will not stop there. The Senate joins Governor Walker in a commitment to build upon the abundant achievements of recent years. We are dedicated to continuing to improve Wisconsin’s business climate, continuing to develop and strengthen our workforce, and continuing to promote accountability and efficiency at every level of government to ensure that our taxpayer dollars are well-spent.

I thank Governor Walker for his renewed commitment to working for Wisconsin and look forward to another productive legislative session under Republican leadership.”

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