BROOKFIELD – Today, Governor Tony Evers delivered his fourth State of the State Address in the Wisconsin State Capitol. Governor Evers highlighted signing one of the largest tax cuts in state history, the largest rainy day fund allotment, lowest unemployment rate and number of people unemployed in state history, and large investments in workforce training as major milestones for 2021. Additionally, he announced key investments in Wisconsin’s veterans and military personnel, rural healthcare and access to care, and student mental health.
Representative Sara Rodriguez released the following statement:
“Wisconsin is better off today thanks to the bold and thoughtful leadership of Governor Evers. While we are still recovering from a global pandemic, there are small businesses open today, roads and bridges updated, more money in the pockets of Wisconsinites and so much more thanks to the smart investments made by the administration. From farmers to child care workers, the people who make everyday life in our state possible have not been forgotten.
“I would be proud to partner with Governor Evers in continuing to build a strong economy while taking care of the most vulnerable. The governor has shown us how to be a leader who cares and plans for a better future.”
