Rep. Wittke Statement on Gov. Evers Budget Address

“I am bewildered by the Governor’s desire to burden Wisconsinites with over a billion dollars of new tax increases during this trying time. It is irresponsible and inconsiderate to the many businesses and residents who have been working hard to make ends meet.

This Governor continually talks about bipartisanship and working together. His budget, however, is loaded with policy and taxing that screams, ‘I’m running for re-election’ and little more. His budget simply doesn’t make any dollars or sense.”
