Madison, WI – State Senator Dan Feyen (R-Fond du Lac) released the following statement after Governor Tony Evers’ 2023 State of the State Address:
“As we enter into 2023, Wisconsin sits with an historic $6.6 billion projected surplus. Republicans in the legislature have been making sound fiscal decisions for more than a decade to put our state in this position and are ready to continue this work, funding our priorities and delivering tax relief to all Wisconsinites.
“I agree with Governor Evers that we need to be prudent with the taxpayers’ money. I am looking forward to the release of his biennial budget to make sure there are smart investments going back into our communities with no wasteful spending.
“There are a lot of positives to look forward to in 2023, but also plenty to improve on. Many industries are facing labor shortages, licensing delays are keeping people from entering or staying in the workforce, and a lack of housing is keeping Wisconsin from bringing in talent to fill our open positions.
“I’m ready and excited to get to work for the people of the 18th Senate District to begin solving these issues.”
