    I suppose that’s not the portion of tax that pays salaries to the Grebe puppets in the legislature. I feel another round of public infrastructure about to take a hit.

    Scoot, please actually work on something other than getting re-elected. The people of Wisconsin deserve better than this pandering. The state (forestation) tax levy is 0.8% of property taxes levied.
