State Representative Janel Brandtjen:

Wisconsin Department of Revenue Shares some Good News:

Earlier this year, while the budget process was in full swing, the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau (LFB) issued its report on the projected revenue coming into the stateís coffers.  The LFB periodically adjust its projections and we here in the legislature were hoping for some good news since the stateís unemployment numbers were well below the national average and business starts were up.  We were disappointed.  At the time the LFB said it was reluctant to revise the numbers upward because even though Wisconsinís numbers were positive the national growth numbers simply werenít there.  This week the Wisconsin Department of Revenue announced that 71.4 million additional dollars were collected.  There is no doubt in my mind that Wisconsin is headed in the right direction. 




God Bless Wisconsin! 


Great to see everyone at the Richfield Days Parade!
