Illinois Tax Hikes Affect Wisconsin's Budget
It took the state of Illinois three years to pass a budget and they still got it wrong. We welcome Illinois taxpayers and businesses who are ready to flee the 32% tax hike passed by their state legislature.
Here in Wisconsin, I expect we will soon pass another budget that will continue to lower the tax burden, create jobs, and protect our most vulnerable populations. Our budget will address the loss of revenue from their tax hike. However, we expect that effect will be temporary as more and more companies are taxed out of Illinois.
Unlike our neighbors to the south, I will continue to prioritize our state's taxpayers. As the end of the budget process draws near, I look forward to approving a budget bill that will continue to move Wisconsin forward.
