Statement on Governor Walker’s State of the State Address    

Madison...Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after Governor Scott Walker’s 8th State of the State address that outlined an Ambitious Agenda.

“The state of the state is undeniably great. We have a strong economy, a growing budget surplus, excellent schools and one of the best health care systems in the country. We have a great story to tell and I’m glad that Governor Walker took the time to share it during this speech.

“I’m hearing growing optimism from people around Racine County and across Wisconsin. People are excited about the future and the many new opportunities ahead. We’re embarking on a transformational period in our state with unprecedented growth. Now is not the time to reverse course. We must continue to make positive reforms to keep Wisconsin open for business and bring even more people into the workforce.

“The Ambitious Agenda that Governor Walker outlined sets the right priorities for Wisconsin. Like the Assembly Republicans’ 2018 agenda, it focuses on encouraging economic development, supporting our schools, reforming welfare and promoting healthy families. Together we can take Wisconsin to the next level and bring more prosperity to not only Racine County but also to the entire state.”
