MADISON, Wis. — Rep. Neubauer released the following statement after the conclusion of Governor Evers’ third Budget Address:
“Governor Evers is delivering for Wisconsinites with proposals to invest in affordable childcare, our clean energy economy, our public schools and students, mental health initiatives, and so much more.
“Not only does the governor’s budget invest in the most pressing challenges for working families, but it also lays out a visionary plan for a brighter future for everyone in our state.
“By acting on the governor’s proposed $14 million investment in the clean energy economy and increased PFAS testing and clean-up, we can bolster our state’s energy workforce, create family-supporting jobs, reduce our long-standing disparities, and secure Wisconsin’s environment for future generations. To protect our environment and our livelihoods, we need bold action at every level — and this budget will help us accomplish that.
“Like Governor Evers said, we are in the strongest financial position since Wisconsin became a state. Now, we have a chance to come together and invest in all Wisconsinites. With Governor Evers’ leadership and this innovative budget proposal, I am confident Wisconsin is on the right track to thrive for years to come.”
