Capitol Notes: GOP Lawmakers Pass Income Tax Cut, Ball Now In Evers' Court

Marti Mikkelson and JR Ross discuss the week in politics in our "Capitol Notes" conversation.

The Republican-controlled state Legislature has passed a $250 million income tax cut and has sent the bill to Democratic Gov. Tony Evers. Republicans want to pay for the tax cut via a projected $600 million budget surplus. 

But, Evers wants to pour some of the money into public schools and lowering property taxes. He's also left the door open for a compromise with the GOP, meaning some money would go toward an income tax cut and some would go to the public schools. Or, he could veto the income tax cut outright.

In this week's Capitol Notes conversation, WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com what he thinks will ultimately happen.  

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
