A Note from Rep. Edming

Over the past several months, many of you contacted me regarding your top priorities for the budget. I listened to you and worked to ensure that your concerns were addressed. I am proud that this budget moves to save SeniorCare for our seniors and protects IRIS and ADRC facilities for future generations. Most importantly however, I'm proud that this budget increases funding for our K-12 school system by $200 million.

After much consideration, I felt I could not vote for its passage due to the inclusion of a repeal of the prevailing wage. I was elected to fight for middle-class workers in northern Wisconsin, and I'm not convinced repealing this law with undocumented savings would be the most prudent action at this time.

I will continue to work hard for my constituents and appreciate that so many of you reached out to me about your thoughts regarding the budget. I am confident that our state will keep moving forward with the continued input from the hardworking citizens of my district.

The budget now moves to Governor Walker's desk.
