Madison, Wisconsin – On Wednesday, the Co-Chairs of the state’s budget-writing Joint Committee on Finance, State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) and State Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette), issued the following statement regarding the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau’s most recent general fund tax revenue estimates:
“The newly released revenue estimates show Wisconsin is on the right track. Our budgetary forecast remains in line with previous estimates. It’s clear that our conservative fiscal reforms have helped build a solid economic foundation for our state.
