Senator Dave Hansen says transportation is not the only issue the state Legislature is differing on when it comes to Governor Scott Walker’s proposal. A UW System tuition cut, the elimination of the state property tax, and the implementation of self-insurance are other areas of the state budget where Democrats and Republicans alike are disagreeing with the governor. Hansen says he supports the Republicans standing up to Governor Walker on some of the reforms being suggested.
Gov. Walker is standing by his budget proposal, tweeting last week he would veto the entire budget if it included a property tax increase on Wisconsinites. The Wisconsin Assembly and Senate are expected to be back on the floor of the state Capitol on June 6.
