Madison… Senator Joan Ballweg (R-Markesan) issued the following statement in reaction to the annual State of the State address. The address was presented by Governor Evers on January 24th where he revealed his agenda for 2023.
“It is easy for Governor Evers to tout historic investments and record high surpluses because Wisconsin has seen over 63 billion dollars of federal pandemic-related funding funnel into our state over his tenure.
“Wisconsinites are still reeling from the effects of the pandemic. Like the governor mentioned, we’ve seen a critical lack of child care, school performance plummet due to the transition to and from virtual schooling and multigenerational businesses close on our main streets.
“I am encouraged by Governor Evers promises to address these issues as I, too, am looking forward to continuing the responsible and sustainable state budgeting that the Republican legislature has delivered over the years. I am committed to providing needed tax relief to our friends and neighbors and passing legislation that will ensure a bright future for our state.
“As we begin the legislative session, I welcome feedback from constituents with their view of Governor Evers’ address.”
