Act 10: $1 Billion and Counting
MADISON – Assistant Majority Leader Dan Knodl (R-Germantown) issued the following statement regarding Governor Walker’s announcement of $1 billion in savings attributable to Act 10 reforms.
“Less than one year after Act 10 became law, Wisconsin taxpayers have seen $1 billion in savings. Within the 24th Assembly District alone, school districts were able to save taxpayers $7 million dollars. This is real money—the typical homeowner saw their first decrease in property taxes in more than a decade.
We had to make a lot of difficult choices in the last budget, but these numbers are another sign Act 10 is working and that Wisconsin is moving forward.”
