[Madison, WI]  Following Governor Evers’ veto of a middle-class tax cut, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“Middle-class Wisconsinites deserve a tax break – it’s unfortunate that Governor Evers is telling them to wait their turn instead of lowering their taxes. With eight years of responsible budgeting and reforms, Wisconsin’s budget is running a surplus and we can afford this tax cut to help hard-working families get ahead. I am confident that Senate Republicans will redouble our efforts and fight to include a middle-class tax cut in the upcoming state budget.

“Let me be clear with the governor: I will not support raising taxes on our state’s job creators. With our economy expanding and the state running a surplus, we shouldn’t be introducing uncertainty into the industries fueling Wisconsin’s comeback.”

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.
