MADISON, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Legislature delayed giving final approval to a $2 billion income tax cut. It’s part of a package also targeting childcare costs that Governor Evers is expected to veto. The Senate passed the proposal last month, so the assembly’s approval will send it to Evers.
Republicans gutted a $1 billion Evers package he called on them to pass in a special session in September and instead put forward an income tax cut Evers has already vetoed. Evers and the Legislature have been at odds for months over tax cuts and funding for childcare services.
