Senate Minority Leader Voices Strong Support for Governor Evers’ Surplus Plan
MADISON, WI – Today, Governor Tony Evers unveiled his plan to use a portion of the state surplus to address rising costs of goods and eliminate barriers to employment for Wisconsin families. Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley issued the following statement regarding the Governor’s proposed plan:
“In the nearly two years since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wisconsin has been able to build back better. While the Republicans in the legislature took a 300-day vacation in the midst of a global crisis, Governor Evers stepped up and made the tough decisions necessary to help our state recover and rebound. Democrats across the state supported the Governor as we built a strong economy, reached record-low unemployment, and achieved unprecedented revenue projections. And we support him today as he announces his latest plan to continue the state’s recovery.
“I am hopeful that my Republican colleagues will recognize the vast benefits this plan provides. Together we can deliver to the people of Wisconsin the help they deserve.”
