Republican lawmakers at the Wisconsin Capitol are once again trying to cut taxes.
The latest effort came Friday when Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu offered to replace Governor Evers’ billion-dollar spending package for child care and workforce development with a two billion-dollar tax cut. LeMahieu says Governor Evers promised to cut taxes for the middle class, but has not yet done that. The governor wants 365 million-dollars for child care providers in the state. LeMahieu said he’d be willing to trade the tax cut for the child care investment. There’s no word from the governor’s office on the offer.
