Majority Leader Steineke Statement on Restoring Education Funding

Madison . . . Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R – Kaukauna) released the following statement today in response to restoring education funding in the next state budget:

“The Legislative Fiscal Bureau’s report confirms that Wisconsin’s revenue estimates are consistent with previous estimates. The Bureau said that future revenue growth is expected to be around 4-5 percent. Now that we have the most accurate picture of our state’s finances, Assembly Republicans will move forward with our top priority - investing in K-12 education. We will make the necessary changes to restore the cut to education funding and fully fund our public schools in this two-year budget.”
