MADISON – Today, Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) offered the Democratic Weekly Radio Address on the ongoing budget fight between Republican leaders:

"They’ve also had four months to write the new state budget that was due July 1. That deadline has come and gone, but Republicans are no closer to finding a solution that works," Rep. Hintz said. "The budget delay reflects the inability or unwillingness, to make the investments necessary to ensure every child as an equal opportunity education and that Wisconsin has quality highways and roads to support economic growth."

The audio file of this week’s address can be found here, and the video can be found here or below.

A written transcript of the address is below:

gordon_hintz"Hi, I’m Rep. Gordon Hintz with this week’s Democratic Radio Address.

"A budget is all about priorities and the Wisconsin State Budget is no different. If you ask people across the state what the state should fund, most will tell you that we should fund our schools, our roads and essential services that keep us safe.

"So why don’t Republican legislators in Madison get that?

"They’ve had six years of complete control at the Capitol to get the job done. Instead, they keep failing. They’ve also had four months to write the new state budget that was due July 1. That deadline has come and gone, but Republicans are no closer to finding a solution that works.

"The budget delay reflects the inability or unwillingness, to make the investments necessary to ensure every child as an equal opportunity education and that Wisconsin has quality highways and roads to support economic growth.

"The budget delay also reflects a lack of leadership. We elect a Governor and Legislature to make important decisions and investments in our state. If education and infrastructure are the biggest budget priorities, there should be no disagreement.

"Thank you."
