Governor Walker Gives State of State Address
Plans to Cut Millions in Taxes
MADISON, Wis.-Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker delivered his budget address today at the Capital.
The Republican focused on boosting money for schools, along with large tuition cuts for college students.
The governor is also looking at cutting about $600 million in taxes and fees, including $200 million in income tax cuts.
“This budget includes historic investments in our priorities,” Walker said. “We’re really putting more money in our public education than ever before making college even more affordable, caring for the truly needy, building a stronger infrastructure, rewarding work, and cutting taxes to the lowest point in decades.”
Democrats, along with some Republicans, feel that the governor is positioning himself to run for a third term in 2018 with this budget proposal.
