Statement on State of the State Address

Governor Walker lays out a simple, yet significant plan to provide tax relief to all Wisconsin residents.  Workers are going to keep more of their pay check and hard-earned money, putting more money in the hands of consumers, spurring economic and job growth throughout the state.


This surplus must not be withheld from Wisconsin’s families, seniors, farmers, and business owners.  Wisconsin residents have been living in a tax hell far too long, it’s about time we get off the backs of taxpayers and provide them much needed relief.  This is taxpayers’ hard earned money; bureaucrats do not deserve to spend it.  I applaud the Governor’s plan to apply $332.6 million in withholding table adjustments.  The effect will return money to taxpayers immediately.


Our disciplined fiscal management put Wisconsin’s fiscal house back in order, providing a stable economic environment for growth and close to two billion dollars in tax relief this session alone.  Last fall, the legislature approved $100 million in property tax reductions.  I look forward to continuing to deliver property tax relief by voting for the Governor’s proposal to reduce property taxes by an additional $406 million. Gone are the days of irresponsible and reckless budgeting, resulting in billion dollar deficits, leaving taxpayers footing the bill.
