Contact: State Senator David Craig
Madison, Wis. – Today, Senator David Craig (R-Town of Vernon) responded to Governor Tony Evers’ State of the State Address with the following statement:
“Governor Evers proved again tonight that he has no shortage of ideas on how to spend your tax dollars but zero ideas on how to strengthen Wisconsin’s workforce, grow private-sector wages, or lessen the tax burden on Wisconsin families.
“Program after program, commission after commission, panel after panel… It is clear that Governor Evers thinks more government is the solution to all of our problems. I believe that individuals, not government, should control their destiny.
“This is the very time when we should be inviting our over-taxed neighbors to the south to join our strong, thriving economy. Instead, we have a governor who is searching for every opportunity possible to expand government and cater to Madison special interests.
“Republican legislative majorities will continue to take a commonsense approach and govern responsibly by limiting government overreach while supporting a free-market economy, which is the very recipe that has led to one of the most prosperous decades in state history.”
