MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) today released the following statement in response to Gov. Tony Evers’ inaugural speech in the state capitol. 

“It comes as no surprise that Gov. Evers’ focus on more spending and big government still rings true in the new year,” said Eric Bott, state director for AFP-WI. “Wisconsin doesn’t need additional money being thrown at a broken system when families and businesses are struggling to make ends meet. Instead, we need transformative policy solutions that will prioritize our students, deliver quality health care at affordable prices, and create a strong economic environment. We’re excited to kick off another legislative session as we continue to work with leadership to tackle these challenges and break barriers for all Wisconsinites.”
