Darling Statement on Taxpayers Saving $13 Billion
Madison - On Thursday, State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) issued the following statement after  the non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau announced taxpayers will have saved $13 billion since 2011 :

"Not long ago, Wisconsin was in the top 10 highest taxed states in the nation. Now we are out of the top ten and headed even lower. According to the Wisconsin Policy Forum, our tax burden is at its lowest point in 50 years.

Even after tax cuts, we continue to fund our schools at historic levels, balance the budget, and grow our economy. Thanks to our reforms, we started the recent budget with $1.8 billion more than previously estimated. Republicans also stopped Governor Evers from hiking taxes by more than $1 billion. Wisconsin is on solid economic ground because we lived within our means, reformed government, and cut taxes.

Our work won't stop here. I will always look for ways to protect the taxpayers of Wisconsin."

Senator Darling represents portions of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties.
