CORRECTED: Scott Walker Statement on Patient Compensation Fund Ruling

Wauwatosa – Scott Walker, Milwaukee County executive and candidate for governor, released the following statement on today’s ruling by theWisconsin Supreme Court that raids by Governor Doyle from the Patient Compensation Fund were unconstitutional. 

“The raids enacted by Governor Doyle are inexcusable and have wreaked havoc on our state budget, and now the taxpayers are yet again on the hook for his misguided policies.   As governor, I’ll find ways to do more with less to fill the $2.5 billion gap created by Governor Doyle, and support an amendment that will protect funds like these from future raids.”
