Rep. Kooyenga’s Statement on Additional State Revenue

Madison – State Representative Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) released the following statement regarding the Legislative Fiscal Bureau’s announcement of additional state revenue of $322.4 million:

“We continue to prove that smart budgeting works for Wisconsin. We froze property taxes and cut income taxes and our state revenue has continued to increase. We refused to grow government and instead demanded efficiencies that helped our seniors, families and young professionals.

As we roll up our sleeves and build this next budget, I am looking forward to working closely with my legislative colleagues and the Governor to put the interests of taxpayers first by directing this additional revenue to lowering Wisconsin’s tax burden, improving education and transportation needs.”
