The recent good news of our state’s growing budget surplus shows Wisconsin is continuing to move forward and building upon the successes of our past two budgets. Thanks to the reforms we have passed and by exercising fiscal responsibility, we are now able to return the benefits of our growing economy back to the hard-working taxpayers of our state.
On Wednesday, the Governor reaffirmed our commitment to reduce our state’s tax burden by returning surplus tax dollars back to Wisconsin residents. I am pleased that the property tax relief proposed by the Governor seeks to reduce the impact of technical colleges on our property tax bills, which has been a growing concern raised by homeowners and small businesses in our region. I look forward to working to advance tax relief as the Governor’s proposals are brought before the State Legislature for consideration.
