Born Applauds State of the State Address

(Beaver Dam) State Representative Mark Born is applauding the governor’s proposal from last night’s State of the State Address that would create a $100 per child tax credit. The Beaver Dam Republican says credits responsible budgeting that put the state in position to return some of the surplus to taxpayers. Born says “whether parents use the money to pay the bills, or create family memories at one of Wisconsin’s great destinations, returning this hard-earned tax money to working families is the right thing to do.” Other 2018 agenda initiatives outlined in the governor’s address include investing $50 million annually in rural economic development to expand business growth and job opportunities across the state; seeking permanent federal approval for SeniorCare; and implementing welfare reform that requires working-age adults to pass a drug test and work at least 30 hours per week, or enroll in job training, to receive public assistance.
