Madison, WI — Today, State Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) voted NO on the 2019-21 Biennial Budget, Assembly Bill 56. He released the following statement:
“My constituents did not send me to Madison to substantially increase the size of government. Unfortunately, that is what this budget does. I remain gravely concerned over the excessive levels of spending and its impacts on current and future taxpayers.
“While I am encouraged by the included income tax cut, Wisconsin remains a high-tax state and the overall spending in this budget all but guarantees we will remain so. This budget fails in its primary function – to appropriately limit the size, and thus the role, of government in our lives.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues to bring forward future reforms to right-size our regulatory and tax environment to the benefit of all Wisconsinites.”
