MADISON – The following is a statement from State Representative Tip McGuire on the passing of the GOP budget in the Wisconsin State Assembly:

“Tonight, the Assembly GOP passed a budget of missed opportunities. This budget yet again passed up the opportunity to bring Wisconsin tax dollars back to the state to expand Medicaid. It passes up the opportunity to make property taxes fairer by closing the Dark Store Loophole, and as a result, does nothing to strengthen our communities and gives less than half of the tax break of the Governor’s proposed budget. Finally, this budget is a missed opportunity to properly invest in our schools and support our teachers and students, especially in special education.”
