Senator Janis Ringhand Statement of Governor’s Budget Address

“At first blush, the Governor’s budget looks more like it comes from Washington, DC than Wisconsin. Borrowing $1.5 billion to balance the budget may be the Washington way, but it will be a difficult sell here in Wisconsin.

The Governor will be long gone before the credit card bill arrives at our children and grandchildren’s doorstep.

As we move forward with the budget process, I look forward to working together with my colleagues in the State Senate, Republicans and Democrats, to craft a budget that reflects the needs and values of Wisconsin.”
