2015-17 State Budget

Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) issued the following statement regarding the status of the 2015-17 Biennial Budget:

“During the last few weeks, we have seen a broken budget process yield a stalemate between the Governor and the leaders of both houses.  However, the rank and file members of the Legislature have been sidelined, while the special interests seem to be at the table behind closed doors, as is the case with the prevailing wage issue, the Bucks’ arena, and last minute pork barrel items being readied for insertion to the budget by the Joint Finance Committee.

Enough is enough.  I would hope that my conservative colleagues in the Assembly and the Senate will fight to make the budget something more than a treasure chest for the special interests.

If conservatives stand united, there can and will be changes to the budget that prioritize the values of our constituents.”
