MADISON – Representative Sara Rodriguez (D-Brookfield) issued the following  statement about Governor Tony Evers’ plan to use surplus funds to help  Wisconsin families: 

“We are fortunate to have a strong, resilient economy in Wisconsin. Our state has  record low unemployment and unprecedented revenue projections. However, we  must acknowledge that two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still  recovering, not recovered. The pocketbook of the average Wisconsinite is hurting,  and your government has the means and tools to help. 

“Governor Evers is proposing real solutions to help people now. We should use  the budget surplus–money we have thanks to the hard work of the taxpayers in  our state–to support those who are struggling. I can’t wait to get back in the  Assembly chamber and vote on proposals to help those with child care and  dependent care needs, to invest in education, and to give money back to  the people.”
