Capitol Notes: It Remains To Be Seen What A GOP-Crafted Tax Cut Would Look Like In Wisconsin
The Republican-controlled Joint Committee on Finance has removed nearly 400 policy items from Democratic Gov. Tony Evers proposed biennial budget. The removed policies included expansion of Medicaid, plus hot-button issues such as marijuana legalization and a repeal of Act 10 — former Gov. Scott Walker’s bill that essentially gutted public unions in Wisconsin. The GOP says it will now craft a budget of its own and Republican leaders have indicated their version may include a tax cut.
In this week’s Capitol Notes, JR Ross of wispolitics.com says it will be a while before a potential tax cut takes shape.
