We’re going to have to wait and see just how much Governor Tony Evers wants to raise Wisconsin’s gas tax. The governor yesterday said he’s just waiting for a final report from a state transportation committee before adding a gas tax increase to his budget proposal. Evers is due to deliver his budget to lawmakers at the end of the month.
TAX CUT FACING EVERS VETO:
Republicans in Madison hope their tax cut proposal isn’t dead on arrival, but it likely is. The state Senate yesterday approved a plan that senators say will cut taxes by ten percent for most middle-class families in the state.The proposal would use the state’s budget surplus to pay for the tax cut. But that’s exactly why Governor Evers says he won’t sign the plan.
