Listening Session Recap

This week I was joined by Senator Van Wanggaard for several listening sessions on the upcoming 2021-2023 biennial state budget. Thank you to everyone who attended virtually or came to the in-person meetings in Sturtevant and Burlington. Assembly Republicans across the state have held local listening sessions and we are all excited to get to work crafting a responsible budget.

State Budget Background:

  • Wisconsin has a biennial, two-year state budget.
  • Wisconsin is not like the federal government -- Wisconsin must have a balanced budget.
  • The process begins in February of odd years when the Governor releases his budget recommendations.
  • In the last budget in 2019 the Legislature eliminated massive tax and spending hikes from the Governor’s proposed budget, resulting in a balanced budget that did not put our state in a hole going into 2021.

Thanks to prudent budgeting and the leadership of Republicans, Wisconsin’s finances are sound and our surpluses have been growing!
