You probably didn’t celebrate it. At least I hope you didn’t.
Yesterday, October 26th, was the second anniversary of passing the previous state budget. On October 26th, 2007, Wisconsin Act 20 was passed, making it the last-in-the-nation state budget to be completed.
This year, you should remember, we got the budget done on time – by July 1st – for the first time since 1977.
With the Democrats in control, somehow we got our job done on time. And we did it protecting state taxpayers during the worst financial conditions of most of our lifetimes.
Now that’s something to celebrate!
