Marklein Statement on $4.6 Billion Positive GAAP Balance

MADISON,WI  – Senator Howard Marklein made the following statement upon the release of the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) today:
“The recent release of the state’s audited financial statements continues the trend of positive reports we have received for the past 12 years. When I was elected to the legislature, we had a $3.0 billion deficit. We have made remarkable, consistent progress since Republicans have had control of the state’s checkbook.”
