MADISON – Representative James Edming (R-Glen Flora) issued the following statement after Governor Walker’s budget address Wednesday afternoon.

“I believe that the proposal Governor Walker laid out today is a good starting point for the 2017-2019 State Budget.  I am excited to get to work with my legislative colleagues to develop this proposal into a budget that works for Wisconsin.

“In his address, I was glad to hear the governor discuss a significant investment in K-12 education and continuing support for broadband expansion efforts in our state.  Both of these issues are things that I hear about time and time again from my constituents.  I am pleased that Governor Walker has made both a priority in this state budget.

“In the weeks ahead, I will be reviewing the governor’s budget proposal and discussing with my colleagues ways to improve this plan for the people of Wisconsin.  I encourage my constituents to provide their input on the budget proposal as the budget works its way through the legislative process.”
