State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
That is the total amount of tax and fee increases in Governor Doyle’s proposed 2009-11 state budget: $1,707,734,400.
The figure was released in a memo I received today from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau.
"We should not, we must not and I will not raise taxes."
