Statement on the Revised Revenue Estimate
MADISON – The following is a statement of Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on the revised revenue estimate released today.
"The increased revenue for the state of Wisconsin should be put directly back into the classrooms that continue to scrape by after the historic budget cuts in the last GOP budget. An additional $36 million in the classroom does not fill the GOP's $800 million education budget deficit, but it could fully fund Senate Democrats' request for an additional $30 million for special education funding, which would support necessary and critical investment in Wisconsin's disabled students.
"The smartest investment we can make for Wisconsin is in our children's future."
