Vukmir supports Senate GOP budget
Senate budget proposal lowers taxes, funds Wisconsin priorities
MADISON, Wis. — Senate Assistant Majority Leader Leah Vukmir, R–Brookfield, Thursday announced her support for the newly released Senate Republican budget proposal:
“Our constituents sent us here to hold the line on taxes. This budget does that and more. Not only are we eliminating the state property tax, but we are also abolishing the personal property tax, which will give much needed relief to small businesses and startups.
“Senate Republicans have also taken a hard look at how to manage Wisconsin’s transportation budget without any increased taxes. The much-needed repeal of prevailing wage in the state will save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, and we will continue implementing recommendations from the DOT audit to ensure tax dollars are spent in the most efficient way.”
