  Rep. Kremer Statement on SB 205 Signed into Law

Madison, WIToday, Governor Walker signed SB 205 into law, granting a 6 percent, retroactive pay increase to Wisconsin State Troopers. In response, Rep. Jesse Kremer (R-Kewaskum) issued the following statement:

"I am happy that the State of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Troopers Association have come to an agreement that will finally provide our state troopers a standard of living increase. While the 3 percent increase for June of last year and the additional 3 percent increase for June of this year may not be as much as they deserve, it is nothing to balk at. The back pay in addition to the ability for management to adjust the step increases within the scope of the Wisconsin State Patrol budget will be extremely beneficial going forward."
