Madison – Today, the Wisconsin State Senate passed the Legislature’s 2021-23 Biennial State Budget. Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg) released the following statement:
“The full Legislature has now passed the most conservative budget in a generation turning Governor Evers’ bloated, political document into a responsible, bi-partisan success story for our state.
“In addition to a transformational $3.4 billion tax cut, the Legislature made targeted investments in every essential function of state government including significant new money to schools, frontline healthcare workers, and a fully-funded transportation system all while maintaining historically low state spending.
“During the last decade, Legislative Republicans spent within our means and kept more money in the hands of hard-working taxpayers and job creators. Today, we doubled down on our past work with a historic budget that keeps the People of Wisconsin on course for another decade of prosperity and success.”
Senator Devin LeMahieu represents the 9th Senate District, which includes portions of Sheboygan, Manitowoc, and Calumet Counties. He serves as Majority Leader for the Wisconsin State Senate.
