[Madison, WI]  Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement today, after Governor-elect Tony Evers‘ announcement that he plans to raise taxes on Wisconsin small business owners and farmers:

“While it’s encouraging that Governor-elect Evers has decided not to do away with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, I’m deeply concerned over his plans to hike taxes on Wisconsin’s small business owners and farmers before he’s even sworn into office. With Republican leadership in the Legislature, our state’s tax burden is at a 50-year low – we will continue in our commitment to keeping taxes low for hard-working families and making sure that Wisconsin stays open for business.”

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