MADISON…Assembly Republican Majority Leader Tyler August (R-Lake Geneva) released the following statement following the annual State of the State address given by Governor Tony Evers:

“While the legislature looks forward to working with Governor Evers on items we can mutually agree upon, Republicans will continue to fight for common-sense values and priorities.  Wisconsin’s healthy budget surplus is a direct result of fiscally responsible budgeting by legislative Republicans.  Tonight, I fear that Governor Evers’ expensive wish list will squander taxpayer dollars to grow the government bureaucracy unnecessarily.  In contrast, Republicans are focused on funding education, addressing the labor shortage, reducing crime, and providing even further tax relief to families and small businesses.”
