Madison, WI – Tonight, Governor Tony Evers delivered the State of the State address at the Wisconsin State Capitol. State Senator Brad Pfaff (D-Onalaska) escorted Governor Evers into the Assembly Chamber for the address, which previewed the Governor’s plans to maintain the economy’s momentum, bolster the state’s workforce, and expand access to quality, affordable childcare.

Senator Pfaff released the following statement after the State of the State Address:

“Wisconsin is working. Since 2019, business start-ups in our state have increased by 42-percent, thousands of miles of roads have been repaired, and more than 387,000 homes and businesses have new or improved access to reliable, high-speed internet.”

“Our economy has bounced back since COVID, but more work needs to be done. I applaud Governor Evers’ focus on building our economy and workforce as we begin the new legislative session.”

“As a member of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation Board, I recognize that economic development and workforce opportunities for hardworking Wisconsinites are the key to moving our state forward. This means giving new businesses the tools to succeed, funding job training opportunities, and addressing the supply chain challenges that impede Wisconsin’s economic growth and drive up costs for our working families.”

“I’m proud to continue my work supporting economic and workforce development in the Coulee Region and across Wisconsin. From developing workforce training programs to fostering greater connections between our schools and local businesses, we have much to do to make Wisconsin an even better place to work, live, and play.”
