Rep. Summerfield Statement on Governor Signing State Budget


MADISON – State Representative Rob Summerfield (R-Bloomer) released the following statement after Governor Evers signed the state budget:


“Today Governor Evers signed the state budget into law, turning 180 degrees from his original $1 billion tax increase to the Republican’s $3.4 billion tax cut. The Governor himself called the Legislature’s investments into healthcare and infrastructure ‘historic.’ We have also made significant investments into emergency medical services, special education, and mental health in schools. Although the Governor issued more than 50 partial vetoes, this is still a strong and fiscally responsible budget. I am glad we were able to bring it to the Governor with bipartisan support and deliver this responsible spending plan for the people of Wisconsin.”
