MADISON – Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling released the following statement after Governor Walker signed the 2017-19 state budget into law:

“As Wisconsin working families continue to pay more for less, the Republican budget further rigs the economy for the wealthy. This budget was bad from the start, and with his veto pen Gov. Walker managed to make it worse by cutting more funding from Wisconsin schools while keeping a tax break for 47 millionaires.”

“Families in Wisconsin deserve better than a budget that continues to delay road projects, limits healthcare access and takes funding away from local schools. Given Wisconsin’s lagging economy and stagnant family wages, Democrats remain focused on leveling the playing, strengthening the middle class and expanding economic opportunities for a brighter future.”
