Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills)
Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette)
MADISON – 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:
“Wisconsin’s finances are in great shape. The estimates released by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau confirms what we already know: common sense reforms and prudent fiscal budgeting have put us on great fiscal standing.
Our economy is strong, consumers are confident, and revenues are up $137.5 million. Our budget surplus is now $385.2 million. It’s clear that our reforms and careful budgeting are working.
Thanks to historic tax cuts, conservative budgeting, and bold reforms, Wisconsin is back. Our state is buzzing with innovation and business. Major employers are relocating to our state. Wisconsinites are keeping more of their hard-earned money.
Before Republicans took control, our state’s finances were in rough shape. Because of the tough decisions we made, Wisconsin is now sailing along, much more efficiently and in much smoother fiscal seas. The horizon looks bright for Wisconsin, we look forward to seeing what it brings.”
