Madison, WI—State Representative Rob Brooks (R-Saukville) issued the following statement regarding Governor Scott Walker’s budget address:
“Governor Walker’s budget proposal provided a solid foundation for continuing to move Wisconsin forward. The 2017-2019 fiscal year budget contains $6.3 million for the Better Bottom Line Initiative, a “pay-for-performance” incentive for school districts whose students with disabilities find employment or post-secondary training/education one year following completion of high school that I authored last session. I look forward to working with Governor Walker and members of the legislature to ensure that this program is fully funded in the 2017-2019 budget.
“As I work with my colleagues on the budget, I will put taxpayer’s first, reduce government, and ensure that the legislature continues to defend individual liberty and protect the constitutional rights of every Wisconsinite. In the next several months, my staff and I will be analyzing the intricacies of this proposal, so as to ensure that it achieves the goals listed above.
“I am looking for constituent input in the months ahead. To better obtain your input, I will be hosting a series of in-district listening sessions and will be sending out a spring survey. With your assistance, we will afford Wisconsinites with the future they deserve.”
