MADISON – The non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau announced new revenue projections today that anticipate $753 million more than expected in general fund tax collections over the next three years. The state will have $2.9 billion in new revenue during the current budget cycle. State Representative Jessie Rodriguez (R-Oak Creek) released the following statement:

“This is great news for our state. It shows that our reforms that included tax cuts and led to one of the strongest economies our state has experienced in decades, are working.”

“Now is the perfect opportunity to pay down debt, provide tax relief to hardworking families across Wisconsin and grow our state’s rainy day fund in case of a recession.”

“I’m pleased to see that our pro-growth reforms are working, we have more revenue and taxpayers can trust that we will use those dollars wisely.”
