Fitzgerald Responds To Governor’s Tax Cut Veto

(Madison) Governor Tony Evers has issued his first veto. As expected, the Democratic governor has vetoed a Republican bill which would have cut income taxes for middle class families. Evers said Republicans failed to provide long term funding for that tax cut. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says middle-class Wisconsinites deserve a tax break and that it is unfortunate that the governor is telling them to wait their turn instead of lowering their taxes. The Juneau Republican adds Wisconsin’s budget is running a surplus and we can afford this tax cut to help hard-working families get ahead. The governor intends to offer his own version of a middle-class tax cut in the state budget proposal he will introduce next week.
