Madison, WI – Rep. Treig E. Pronschinske released the following statement succeeding Governor Evers’ budget address:
“Hard work demonstrated by strong Republican leadership led to a substantial surplus after the last legislative session. Governor Evers came to the table with tax increases, expensive programs, and lofty expectations built on Wisconsinites taxes. Thankfully, my fellow colleagues were able to craft a budget that put money in taxpayers’ pockets and left our state in a wonderful financial position.
“Sadly, Governor Evers has once again proposed excess spending that would hike up taxes and create a multitude of unnecessary programs. I am excited to see my Republican colleagues combat these reckless spending tendencies by the Governor and once again create a budget surplus that works for all Wisconsinites.”
