Sen. Ringhand: Statement regarding State of the State address

Contact: State Senator Janis Ringhand; (608) 266-2253; Sen.Ringhand@legis.wisconsin.gov

“After eight years of divide and conquer, it is refreshing to hear the Governor outline a positive vision for the future.

Governor Evers is clearly in tune with families who understand public education is the key to our children’s future. I applaud and support his call to return to two-thirds state funding of public education and share his belief that Wisconsin does best when we do right by our kids.

I applaud Governor Evers for continuing to focus on the core issues that he addressed during his successful campaign.

Focusing on providing affordable and accessible health care to everyone in Wisconsin is critical. We cannot go backwards. People expect and deserve the protections provided by the Affordable Care Act.

Furthermore, his plan to bring all sides together to develop a long term plan to fix our roads and bridges is long overdue.

Governor Evers understands that Wisconsin’s economy must work for everyone. Despite low unemployment and an economy that is working for some, there are over 800,000 Wisconsinites that are struggling and being left behind. His commitment to creating an economy that that works for all of us is refreshing.”
