Harsdorf Statement on Finance Committee Action
“This has been a challenging budget process as we worked to invest in our state’s priorities while living within the means of taxpayers.  As a member of the Finance Committee, I am pleased that we were able to find savings in the Governor’s budget proposal to provide additional funds for our schools, restore critical conservation programs, and enact property tax relief.”
“In addition to changes on education and conservation, the Finance Committee has listened to citizens and taxpayers by acting to preserve SeniorCare, remove proposed changes to Family Care and ADRCs, and maintain a role for citizen input into natural resources and agriculture policies.  The budget proposal approved by the Committee also seeks savings for working families and seniors by holding down property taxes, freezing UW System tuition, and reducing the marriage penalty in the income tax code.”
