Statement on Governor Walker’s state budget address

“Governor Walker has built his budget on phantom funds leaving all of the tough decisions to the Legislature while he works for his reelection. This is truly disappointing leadership. For six years this state has struggled with cuts to infrastructure, cuts to education and failed corporate giveaways. The one billion dollar transportation deficit is once again punted by Governor Walker. Road project delays and credit card financing live another day in Walker’s Wisconsin. As we move ahead in the budget process, Wisconsin Democrats remain committed to work for more state funding our public education, developing policies that build family supporting jobs and to finding a long term solution to our states transportation crisis.”
