Governor Delivers State Of The State Address


Governor Scott Walker used last night’s State of the State Address to outline what he called a “Blueprint for Prosperity.” It would put more than $800 million back into the hands of taxpayers including reducing $406 million in property taxes, cutting income taxes by $100 million, and reducing withholding taxes by $322.6 million. State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt says the state has seen quite a change from the $3.6 billion deficit the Walker administration inherited from Governor Doyle. Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau says it remains unclear if members of his caucus will back the governor's proposed income and property tax cuts.The state is projected to enter the next budget biennium with a $715 million shortfall. Governor Walker's plan outlined in his State of the State could increase that above $800 million. Assembly minority Leader Peter Barca of Kenosha says the governor should be looking to put money back into education that was taken out in recent budgets. News-Talk 1450 KFIZ will be rebroadcasting the State of the State address at 11 a.m. this morning. Meanwhile if you’d like to see text versions of the State of the State Address and the Democratic response look for them in our news story at KFIZ.com. Wisconsin Radio Network photo.
