Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement that addresses the revenue re-estimates for the state from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau.
“As fiscal conservatives, we have consistently looked out for the best interests of the taxpayers of Wisconsin. These new revenue projections reflect the growing economy and the impact of the pro-growth reforms made by Republicans over the last eight years.
“Assembly Republicans are announcing our intentions to put these dollars toward providing tax relief, growing the rainy day fund or paying down debt. Now is not the time to go on a spending spree with one-time revenues. We refuse to spend in a way that we can’t afford.
“The citizens of Wisconsin should be confident that we’ll continue to be good stewards of their tax dollars. Moving forward in the budget process, we’re committed to making the right priorities without raising income or sales taxes and expanding welfare.”
