Governor Signs Bipartisan Budget
Republicans Deliver Largest Tax Cut in State History
Madison – Wisconsin taxpayers will soon see the largest tax cut in the state’s history. On Thursday, Governor Evers signed the two-year state budget which was passed last week. State Senator Alberta Darling says she is glad everyone in Wisconsin will see tax relief after a difficult year.
“Governor Evers is trying to re-write history. The plan the governor sent us was unworkable. It spent too much, taxed too much, and removed reforms that led our state’s turnaround. In fact, both of the governor’s budget plans would have sent the state in the wrong direction.
Republicans put working families first. Instead of the governor’s proposed plan with more than $1 billion in tax hikes and massive spending increases during a pandemic, Republicans cut taxes by $3.4 billion – the largest tax cut in state history. Our budget funds our shared priorities like health care, schools, and infrastructure. We restored 2/3rds funding for public education and invested in health care workers, nursing homes, and caregivers. Republicans delivered a budget that is good for taxpayers, workers, and for families.
Wisconsin families have been through a lot in the past year, the Republican budget provides real tax relief for everyone in the state.”
Senator Darling represents portions of Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington, and Waukesha Counties.
