[Madison, WI]  Following the announcement by Assembly Republicans that they plan to cut taxes for middle-class families, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement:

“Middle-class families in Wisconsin should keep more of what they earn. I’m glad to see that our colleagues in the Assembly are prioritizing plans to lower taxes and I have asked Senator Marklein, Senator Kooyenga, and Senator Stroebel to work with the Assembly on a plan to deliver tax relief for hard-working families.

“During the last eight years of Republican leadership in Wisconsin, taxes have been cut by over $8 billion dollars. With another budget surplus this year, we can once again prioritize lowering taxes on families without raising taxes on small businesses and farmers.

“Governor Evers’ past statements in support of tax relief give me hope that we can work together to continue to lower the tax burden. Together, we can keep making Wisconsin the best place in the country to work, live, and raise a family.”

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