Weekly Addresses From Your Legislature

 

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch delivers the governor's radio address this week, touting record state exports in 2012.
"The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has been instrumental in helping Wisconsin companies grow their export businesses. And you know our administration believes in growing business, not government," Kleefisch says. "The WEDC promotes this by bringing businesses together, domestically and internationally, to benefit the hard-working folks of Wisconsin."

Kleefisch adds the governor's China trip will raise awareness about Wisconsin's economic strengths internationally, and that "by the time he next gives this address, the governor will have made the connections to potentially bring millions in sales and investments to Wisconsin."

Listen to Lt. Gov. Kleefisch's full address.


Senate Minority Leader Chris Larson, in the Democrats' weekly address, slams the levels of debt and a lack of education funding in Walker's budget.

"Zero new dollars provided for textbooks or pencils in most schools, while we borrow billions for lavish concrete projects," says Larson, D-Milwaukee. "Our neighbor’s families and our children will suffer from both the lack of educational opportunities this budget offers and the debts they have to pay from spending millions on bigger highways."

Larson alleges that Walker has "a long history of using budget gimmicks to create so-called balanced budgets," saying he borrowed $400 million to pay off debts as Milwaukee County executive in 2009.

"After leaving Milwaukee County’s fiscal house in disarray, he brought this dishonest habit to Madison," Larson says. "Unfortunately, our children and grandchildren will be stuck paying off the debts this budget creates."

Listen to Larson's full address.

 

Each week the Republicans and Democrats in the state legislature release a radio address to keep citizens up to speed on what's happening in Madison. We'll bring them to you along with a brief summary of each address. Feel free to comment below or email your thoughts to roltgen@doorcountydailynews.com.
