Senator Fowler responds to 2023-24 Budget Address

State Senator Dale Fowler has released the following statement following the Governor’s State of the State and State Budget Address:

“While there were encouraging parts of the Governor’s budget proposal today pertaining to education, we have to put a hold on spending as our nation heads towards a recession.

“Federal funds that were allocated in previous budgets are drying up and this year’s budget includes $3 billion in new permanent spending.

“If we don’t rein in our spending, taxpayers could be in for a massive tax hike while so many families are already struggling due to rising inflation and utility costs.”
