Lawmaker says he broke with party lines to oppose budget cuts to education

Rep. Scott Krug, R-Nekoosa, just secured reelection in the Wisconsin 72nd Assembly District. The district covers parts of Wood, Portage, Adams and Waushara counties in central Wisconsin. Krug was first elected to the chamber in 2010. During his campaign, Krug penned an op-ed to voters Oct. 13 in the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune titled: “Support for public schools my top priority.”

The claim

The Wisconsin state government implements a biennium budget every two years.
