Republicans to propose middle class tax cut in budget


The leader of the Wisconsin senate says republicans are planning to include a roughly $400 million middle class tax cut in the state budget.

Senate Majority Leader, Scott Fitzgerald says republicans want to hit that tax cut number before finishing committee work on the budget this week.

The legislature’s joint finance committee planned to finish its work on the budget Thursday, before sending it to the full legislature.

Democratic Gov. Tony Evers has to sign it before it would become law. Evers already vetoed a republican income tax cut proposal funded by budget reserves.
