Want to get in the game?

Even with a two-house legislative majority, there is no assurance that the budget Governor Walker signs into law will contain everything he put into the bill introduced last month. No governor ever gets to enact precisely the budget he’s proposed.
To help make sure good ideas don’t fall by the wayside as the budget takes shape, Wisconsin Club for Growth (WICFG) has launched a new website highlighting key budget initiatives. Included is the opportunity to email and call legislators in support of the budget.
Governor Walker’s proposed budget for the coming biennium continues on the path of fiscal realism and common sense reforms that made the current (2011-13) budget a success, turning a recurring, multi-billion dollar deficit into an anticipated surplus of nearly half a billion dollars.
The 2013-15 Walker budget aims at healthcare and education reforms, new investments in worker training, a middle-income tax cut and other changes to the tax and regulatory environment to help grow jobs and reduce Wisconsin’s unemployment rate.
The first step toward getting involved is to follow this link: http://goforwardwi.com/ There, you’ll find background material on budget issues and easily-accessible information identifying the lawmakers who represent your area, so you can make your views known.
WICFG has made a commitment to broadly share the facts about this budget. Take advantage of the information links provided, give some thought to the opportunities to put Wisconsin even more solidly on the right track, and call or email your legislators today.
Tell them support Governor Walker’s plan to keep moving Wisconsin Forward.
