Kenosha – Sen. Bob Wirch (D-Somers) issued the following statement after Governor Evers delivered his 2021-2023 State Budget Address

“One of the things we have learned through the Covid-19 pandemic is how great the divide between the “haves” and the “have nots” truly is. I’m happy to see Governor Evers using an expected surplus to address this by strengthening core human service and social safety net programs. The expansion of BadgerCare, the increased investment in mental health services, the small business recovery program, and a minimum wage increase will all benefit Wisconsin’s working families at a time when they really need it.”
