Madison- State Representative Thomas Weatherston (R-Caledonia) is proud of his vote to pass the State Budget. A historic budget that provides the largest investment to K-12 schools in state history while it also protects the taxpayers.
“Taxpayers in the 62nd District as well as around the state deserve to keep more of their own money and this budget delivers on that,” said Rep. Weatherston. “This budget ends in the black with a positive balance while doing what is best for the Racine Unified School District. This gives Racine the opportunity to fix the issue of low scores with a 52% failure rate within the district.”
The budget bill will now head to the state Senate for consideration before going to Governor Walker to sign into law.
