State Representative pledges to work on main priorities of education, clean water, safe communities and mental health
Madison…Representative Paul Tittl (R-Manitowoc) is pleased with the progress being made in Wisconsin thanks to the Republican leadership over the past nine years.
The four-term state representative attended the governor’s annual State of the State address before a joint session of the Wisconsin State Legislature on Wednesday night.
“I don’t agree with many of the governor’s priorities that would increase spending and government regulations,” said the Manitowoc representative. “However, I support the governor’s main priorities of education, safe communities and clean water.
“The state of our state is strong. Wisconsin is moving forward with a good economy, lower taxes, good schools and continued access to quality health care,” said Rep. Tittl. “Our policy reforms and conservative principles have been paying off for the state but we have more work to do.”
Rep. Tittl is pleased the governor signed the conservative state budget into law. “That budget increases access to affordable health care, cuts taxes by more than $400 million, expands worker training programs and makes historic investments in roads and schools,” Rep.Tittl said.
More than 95 percent of the votes were bipartisan in the Assembly during the first year of the legislative session. “Even so, No Democrats voted for the budget, said Rep. Tittl.
During the final months of the legislative session, Rep. Tittl looks forward to voting on bills promoting clean water, safe communities and mental health.
Rep. Tittl is pleased that the legislature has effectively stopped the governor’s liberal agenda and kept the state open for business. However, the unemployment rate is beginning to increase and his administration has been largely silent on workforce concerns in the state.
“I’m focused on issues that bring people together such as more mental health access” said Rep. Tittl. “I’ll continue to listen to my constituents and help move Wisconsin forward.”
