chris_larsonMilwaukee - Senator Larson released the following statement regarding Governor Evers’ First State of the State Address

“In his first State of the State Address, Governor Evers laid out a strong vision for a first term that has a foundation in working together for the benefit of all of our friends and neighbors, not just those who can afford an army of lobbyists. There are hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin families who have been left behind over the last eight years and are struggling to make ends meet. During that same time, some of our wealthiest corporations and citizens have done very well. Whether it is access to healthcare, a reasonable living wage, or funding our public education and infrastructure, Governor Evers recognizes the significant challenges facing our neighbors across Wisconsin.

“One of our cherished Wisconsin values is that we care about our neighbors. Governor Evers wants to restore that value and make sure that everyone in Wisconsin has the same access to opportunity.”

robinvosMADISON - After eight years of staunchly refusing to consider Democratic proposals to protect Wisconsinites’ health care, fully fund the state’s classrooms and provide a long-term solution to Wisconsin’s transportation crisis, Assembly Republicans have suddenly expressed support for such priorities in a letter sent to Governor Tony Evers today.

“Where was this ‘hand of bipartisanship’ the last eight years?” asked Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Courtney Beyer. “Now that Vos no longer has a rubber stamp in the Governor’s office, he’s chosen to steal the same Democratic proposals that he spent the last six years shooting down. Clearly Republicans care more about taking credit for Governor Evers and legislative Democrats’ ideas than actually solving the problems our state faces.”
