Interview with Sen. Chris Larson, Senate education committee ranking member

Recently, I conducted a brief interview with Sen. Chris Larson (D-Milwaukee), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Education, to get his thoughts on the governor’s budget proposal for schools and other legislation. This is the latest in a series of interviews I will be conducting with key state lawmakers to provide legislative insight on the state budget. We thank Sen. Larson for taking the time to join us!

Sen. Larson told me that Gov. Evers’s K-12 budget is a realistic and moderate proposal and is optimistic about the potential of bipartisan agreement during the budget process. That being said, he doesn’t see much chance of his GOP colleagues agreeing to freezing vouchers, voucher accountability measures, or the grant program to replace race-based mascots as proposed by the governor.
