wi-senate-swearing-inDemocratic legislator disagrees with Republican priorities.

MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement on the Republican tax proposal:

“This appears to be another last minute, hastily thrown together proposal by Republican leadership aimed at playing politics rather than prioritizing what is best for our state.

gordon_hintz“The speaker’s own blue ribbon commission on K-12 education spent a year meeting around the state resulting in recommendations reflected in Governor Evers’ special session proposal. That appears to have been another attempt to say they are doing something, while ignoring the needs of schools districts and kids across Wisconsin. We see the same thing on mental health funding for schools. Republicans say it is a priority and that we need to act, but then they cut $38 million from the governor’s proposed budget and refuse to act when given the opportunity to support it. If it is priority then Republicans should support the governor’s education package, not make empty statements pretending they care.

“Proposing a last minute package with plenty of questions and unintended consequences with less than a week to act is more of the same tired politics we have become accustomed to under Speaker Vos and Senate Majority Leader Vos.”
