The Republican-controlled Legislature passed a middle class tax cut last week. It includes using a surplus to pay for the cut. Now, the ball is in Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' court. He also is pushing for a tax cut — but to pay for it, he wants to virtually eliminate a manufacturing tax credit. There's been talk that Evers will veto the GOP tax plan, and unveil his own, in his budget address later this month.
WUWM's Marti Mikkelson asked JR Ross of wispolitics.com about the issue in this week's Capitol Notes conversation. Ross says the "going bet" is that Evers will reject the Republican proposal, because he doesn't think it's properly funded.
