MADISON, WI- Yesterday, Governor Evers signed the 2021-23 state budget and announced that $100 million in federal funds would be invested in our public schools. On this announcement, Representative Shelia Stubbs (D-Madison) released the following statement:

“The budget that Governor Evers introduced was an investment in the future of Wisconsin. The central priority in his budget was clear: we need to put people over politics. Instead the Joint Finance Committee removed meaningful provisions to expand BadgerCare, invest in higher education, and protect our environment.”

“Governor Evers signed this budget into law today, but he used his partial veto to make this budget better for the people of Wisconsin. Instead continuing partisan gridlock, Governor Evers ensured that Wisconsin communities can move forward.”

“Also I want to commend President Biden and Governor Evers for their continued commitment to public education in Wisconsin. Their investment of $100 million in our public schools will make a real impact in the lives of children in our K-12 system.”

“While the budget season is now officially over, the fight for a more equitable Wisconsin continues. As your representative I will continue to advocate for environmental protection, accessible healthcare, quality education, and meaningful criminal justice reform. We must continue our fight for a better Wisconsin, and build progress wherever we can.”
