State Republicans Against Policy, Earmarks In Budget Bill

State Senator Randy Randy Hopper (R-Parts Unknown):
“Budgets should not be used to conceal controversial policy that has little chance of passing as separate legislation,” Hopper said.  “None of the non-fiscal policy will help solve our budget deficit and much of it will harm working families all over Wisconsin.”
“If we’re going to talk the talk on earmarks and policy, we have to walk the walk,” Hopper said.  “Even though some of the earmarks and non-fiscal policy items benefit my district, it is clear that our 1,800 page budget is the wrong place for these items.”
State Senator Dan Kapanke also stated similar sentiments.

Too bad that they said it two years ago and obviously didn't mean a word of it.
