Madison, WI – Senator Duey Stroebel (R-Cedarburg) released the below statement following Governor Evers’ State of the State Address:
“Wisconsin continues on the right path thanks to the work of Legislative Republicans. In his speech tonight, Governor Evers articulated a vision that may resonate in Madison and Milwaukee, but falls well short of the values and priorities of my constituents. The Governor plans to spend too much, tax too much and increase the size of state government at the expense of hard working Wisconsinites.
“While Governor Evers acknowledged the challenges facing rural Wisconsin, his policy proposals during his first year as Governor have not aided farmers or their neighbors. He proposed ending the manufacturing and agriculture tax credit, a key driver of economic growth in Wisconsin. His proposed budget prioritized urban schools and their students over their rural peers. His agencies have also pursued policies and regulations that will increase the cost for businesses throughout our state, including farmers. Governor Evers’ agenda will not benefit rural Wisconsin or my constituents.
“I look forward to working on behalf of my constituents to ensure that Wisconsin continues on the path of prosperity and success.”
