Holiday plans for a state agency are drawing fire.
State Senator Glenn Grothman (R-West Bend) is concerned about plans by the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority to spend $1,400 on flowers from a Christmas party. Grothman says it seems like a poor choice at a time when many families are facing tough economic times and even losing their homes.
Grothman says that if there’s extra money floating around the agency it should be donated to a charity such as the Salvation Army.
