Rep. Petrowski reacts to Budget Repair Bill


MADISON (PRESS RELEASE)--Petrowski Statement on Passage of the Budget Repair Bill:

"The past week has been extremely tense and stressful, as I do not take the decisions made in the legislature lightly.  As a former union worker, I understand the passion of the protestors and sympathize with them.  I have received a tremendous number of phone calls and email messages both for and against the bill that passed today.  With that being said, the immediate goal for the legislature was to make the necessary cuts to government in order to save thousands of jobs today and in the future.

I understand this is not a perfect bill, but I believe that when the Governor presents the details of the full state budget this coming Tuesday, people will have a clearer understanding of the dire fiscal situation facing the state as well as local governments."
