Walker says $759 million surplus shows state ‘on the right track’; Kickstarter funding for new businesses? Senate votes today; More state news briefs
Gov. Scott Walker said "tough but prudent decisions" are why the state government had a surplus of $759 million when the last budget expired June 30.
Officials said Monday that the surplus was $89 million more than what was expected when Walker prepared his new budget last winter.
The governor said he promised to be a good steward of the taxpayers' money, and the new report shows, "We're on the right track."
