Madison- State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) released the following statements concluding actions taken by Joint Finance Committee today:
“Today the Republican members of the Joint Finance Committee reinforced our commitment to provide significant tax relief to Wisconsin’s families, seniors, farmers, and job creators while securing the state’s fiscal future.
We are taking a majority of $912 million dollar surplus and putting it directly back into the hands of taxpayers by reducing property taxes by over $400 million, lowering income taxes by nearly $100 million, and reducing the withholding for state income taxes by $322.6 million. Wisconsin will not reach its full potential with Madison bureaucrats stashing and spending.
Gone are the days of irresponsible and reckless budgeting, resulting in billion dollar deficits, leaving taxpayers footing the bill. Our continued disciplined fiscal management puts Wisconsin’s fiscal house in order, providing a stable economic environment for growth and close to two billion dollars in tax relief this session alone.
Thank you to Governor Walker for leading the way, and thank you to my colleagues in the Wisconsin State Senate and Wisconsin State Assembly for making this happen.”
