MADISON – Today, Governor Evers acted on the 2021-2023 state budget and announced an additional $100 million in additional funding for Wisconsin’s public schools. Representative Lisa Subeck (D- Madison) released the following statement.
“Governor Evers presented the state with a strong and visionary budget proposal that could have paved the way for a better future. Ultimately, Republicans made drastic cuts to school funding and gutted the Governor’sbudget, leaving a mere shell of what was possible and presenting the legislature with the false choice of investing in children’s futures or providing tax cuts for hardworking Wisconsinites.
This budget never needed to be an either/or scenario that pitted funding our children’s classrooms against tax cuts for hardworking families. Governor Evers’ action today resolves many shortcomings and makes key improvements to the budget. Most importantly, I applaud Governor Evers’s move to provide an additional $100 million for our public school classrooms while keeping his promise of tax cuts for middle-class families.”
