Madison… Kudos are deserved for Governor Scott Walker and the Senate Republicans for quickly coming to an agreement on a budget that saves the citizens of our fine state millions and millions of dollars, while also making sure no special interests have any appearance of an advantage in competing for work paid for with your tax dollars.
The final stage of the budget process shows how reasonable people working with the concerns of their state taxpayers as their only focus can quickly come to an agreement. No hostage rescue teams were needed, no begging the Assembly to consider amendments was necessary and all of the hyperbole was for naught. The Governor, in discussions with the Senate, was able to quickly craft a final budget version that I am now pleased to support.
