Wisconsin legislatures are moving closer to approving the two-year state budget. Joint Finance Committee passed a proposed budget last Wednesday. GOP Lawmakers dropped several of Governor Scott Walker’s broad tax cut proposals, by instead focusing on tax cuts for businesses and narrow groups, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Governor Walker, earlier this week commented on the budget process and how K-12 education is a key component of it.
Gov. Walker was at the Southern Door schools on Tuesday to tour the fabrication laboratory, known as fab lab, built for this school year thanks in part to a $25,000 state grant. The proposed $76 Million state budget will go to the assembly this week before potentially being passed by the Senate as soon as later this week.
