Sen. Howard Marklein's Statement on 2021-23 Wisconsin Budget

"The Governor had no choice but to sign the legislature's budget."

MADISON, WI - Sen. Howard Marklein (R-Spring Green) made the following statement today following the Governor’s signing of the Republican Legislature’s State Budget bill:

“I am very happy that the Governor signed the legislature’s budget into law.  We crafted a great budget for rural Wisconsin that includes $100 million for local, rural roads, increased reimbursements for hospitals and nursing homes and support for the workers who care for us.
Our bi-partisan budget, which was supported by seven democrats, including the Senate Minority leader, funded our priorities while significantly cutting taxes and guaranteeing Federal funds for our schools. The Governor had no choice but to sign the legislature’s budget.”
