WI: Evers signs GOP-written state budget with $2 billion tax cut

Source: WiscNews

“Gov. Tony Evers signed the Republican-written state budget Thursday, enacting a two-year spending plan that includes a $2 billion income tax cut while making 50 largely minor partial vetoes, saying ‘unfinished business’ still needs to be addressed. The budget will also cut property taxes for the owner of an average home by $100 next year, ends a University of Wisconsin tuition freeze in place for eight years, increases salaries for state employees and basically holds K-12 funding flat. Evers also announced that schools will be receiving $100 million more in federal funds to use as they wish. Both Evers, who signed the budget, and the Republicans who wrote and passed it took credit for the tax cut made possible by a revenue surplus.” (07/08/21)
