The People’s Budget is a Win for Wisconsin
“It’s a new day in Wisconsin."
After months of open discussions with community leaders, students, families and seniors, Governor Tony Evers has unveiled his 2019-2021 State Budget. Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:
“It’s a new day in Wisconsin. For the first time in eight years, we have a Governor that is listening to Wisconsinites and connecting the dots to create a budget that reflects our values. It’s clear that this proposal isn’t a Republican budget or a Democratic budget, but the People’s Budget – a budget that restores tax fairness for working families, puts more money into local classrooms, and ensures more Wisconsinites have access to affordable health care.
“Democrats are eager to work with Gov. Evers and deliver on his promise to protect access to clean drinking water, close corporate tax loopholes, increase child care affordability and invest in 21st century infrastructure. By fixing our crumbling roads, repairing outdated bridges and expanding high-speed broadband access, we can open the door to a world of opportunities for communities across Wisconsin. This is a budget that works for everyone and tackles the tough issues that have been ignored for far too long.”
