Madison…State Representative Joan Ballweg (R-Markesan) released the following statement in reaction to the Legislative Fiscal Bureau’s re-estimate of state revenue projections:
“The recent state revenue projections show that federal tax code changes and Wisconsin Republicans’ reforms over the past eight years have led to a roaring state economy.
“The additional nearly $150 million available for the next biennium on top of the $1.8 billion previously estimated will continue to grow the rainy day fund to historic amounts. This proves that we can fund priorities such as providing tax relief and paying down debts without raising taxes.
“As we continue to build our 2019-21 state budget, Wisconsinites can be confident that we will continue to be good stewards of their money and keep Wisconsin moving forward.”
