MADISON, WI – Today, Governor Evers announced that his next budget will include a $91.4 million increase in shared revenue to support public safety. On this, Rep.Stubbs (D-Madison) released the following statement: 

“Once again, Governor Evers is committing our state to community safety.  By investing in our local law enforcement, EMS providers, and firefighters we can continue to make Wisconsin a safer place to live and work for everyone”

“Our local communities cannot continue to do more with less. Over the last 10 years, local assistance has been stagnant in our state, while public safety costs continue to rise. This trend is unsustainable, and we must do better. By investing in our municipalities, we are investing in the leaders that directly serve our communities.”

“After serving 16 years on the Dane County Board of Supervisors, I know that public safety begins locally. By investing in local solutions, we are setting a standard of safety across our state. As legislators, it is our duty to listen to the counties, cities, towns, and villages in our districts, and ensure they have the resources they need to succeed. With continued investments like this, our communities will be better served and better prepared. “

“I want to thank Governor Evers again for continuing to prioritize public safety and invest in local communities across our state. I urge my colleagues to keep this proposal intact as it moves through the legislative budget process.”
