Budget Battle Continues

Budget Battle Continues

 We should get a better sense of the split between Republicans at the Wisconsin Capitol over shared revenue today.

The State Senate is holding its first hearing on its proposal. Republicans in both the Senate and the Assembly want to use some of the state’s sales tax dollars to send more money to local governments, but there’s a disagreement over a proposed Milwaukee sales tax increase. Assembly Republicans want voters to have a say, while Senate Republicans want to allow Milwaukee and Milwaukee County leaders to vote instead. The split is threatening to derail the plan to share more than 500 million-dollars in state money with local governments across the state.
