Representative Lisa Subeck: Republican Budget Motion
Takes Budget from Disaster to Catastrophe
MADISON – Representative Lisa Subeck (D-78) made the following statement in response to the Republicans’ final budget motion in the Joint Finance Committee.
“At listening sessions and events, on the phone, and in my email box, my constituents have conveyed a clear message: They want strong public schools, a thriving university system, a sustainable transportation plan, and a clean environment.
Instead of hearing the pleas of the people of Wisconsin, Republicans have used their final Joint Finance motion to pad the pockets of payday lenders, withhold workers’ weekends, and trample transparent government.
Republicans just took their disaster of a state budget and created an all-out catastrophe.”
