Statement on Tonight’s Budget Address
MADISON – The following is a statement from Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on tonight’s budget address.
“Governor Walker confirmed what we all expected to hear tonight: this budget ignores Wisconsin’s middle class families and students in favor of special interest giveaways and more tax cuts for the wealthy. Increasing transportation funding by almost the same amount cut to education in the last budget is the clearest example of the unbalanced priorities in this plan.
“Wisconsin’s budget is still in a values deficit, choosing highways over high schools, asphalt over academics and concrete over our classrooms.”
