State Sen. Sue Rezin issued the following statement in response to budget action taken May 23 at the Statehouse.
“The action taken by the majority in the Senate is simply more of the same from what we’ve seen over the past decade. Simply put, Democrats passed yet again, an unbalanced budget.
“Their actions also include a tax increase on working families with no other relief attached, such as property tax relief, and it failed to include necessary reforms that will boost our economy and create jobs.
“Their action is unfortunate and frustrating as good, bi-partisan progress was being made on a balanced budget that would end the status quo and turn our state around fiscally and economically.”
