Wisconsin Senate Passes Property Tax Cut, Garners Bi-Partisan Support
The Senate has passed Governor Scott Walker’s $100 million property tax cut proposal and that means Wisconsin home owners will be saving some money next year.
Albeit, not a lot of money, officials say a typical homeowner would save $13 next year and $20 after that. Gov. Walker’s Administration said the state has an $89 million surplus so Walker wants to lower the amount homeowners pay in property taxes by $100 million.
Five of the Senate’s 15 Democrats voted no Tuesday to cut local property taxes by $100 million over the next two years. As expected, the bill passed in a bi-partisan fashion.
