Middle Class Tax Relief

Press Conference 500.jpg


    Today I joined with Assembly Republicans in Madison and took the first step toward returning our government surplus and fulfilling Governor Evers' campaign promise to reduce the tax burden on Wisconsin families. Six press conferences took place simultaneously across the state in Madison, La Crosse, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wausau, and Eau Claire announcing a middle class tax cut. 

    The ending balance for fiscal year 2018 came in higher than expected, resulting in a $588.5 million surplus. Additionally, the Department of Revenue predicts our revenues will be higher and Medicaid expenses will be lower than anticipated for fiscal year 2019. I can't think of a better way to serve you than by giving you back your hard-earned money! 

    Our proposal will result in a median savings of about 10.5%, or $310 in net taxes, for families. The cuts benefit single filers making under $100,000 or families making less than $150,000. About 75% of the relief will be felt by middle class filers with incomes ranging from $30,000 to $100,000.

    This is a bipartisan effort, resulting from smart budgeting by Republicans over the last eight years and a promise from Governor Evers to cut middle class taxes if elected. A crucial benefit of the plan is that we can provide tax cuts without shifting the burden or raising taxes elsewhere, even keeping the Manufacturing and Agriculture Tax Credit intact. You can read more of my comments on the plan by clicking here

    As always, if there is anything I can do to assist you, please contact me. You can share your thoughts, find out additional information on issues, or see where I stand on any legislation. I look forward to hearing from you and, as always, working for you.

Calumet County Meeting 500.jpg

 Wisconsin Counties' Association Meeting: Calumet County

    Yesterday I joined my colleagues in welcoming Calumet County representatives to the Wisconsin State Capitol. Sen. LeMahieu, Rep. Vorpagel, and staff for Rep. Tusler and Sen. Jacque were all in attendance to hear about county initiatives and priorities for the 2019-2020 legislative session.

    There is a lot we can do to benefit local government this session, such as adding a county judge, expanding broadband access and providing funding for better child care. I'm proud to represent Manitowoc and Calumet Counties and advocate for their needs while serving in Madison.

Children's Caucus 500.jpg

Family Complexity and Public Policy

    I attended a Wisconsin Legislative Children's Caucus meeting this morning to hear from the Director of the Institute for Research on Poverty and UW-Madison Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor, Lawrence Berger. He provided helpful information on family structures in the state and the impact the increasingly complex families have on children.

    Though teenage pregnancy is on the decline, family structures are increasingly changing. Most children will not live with both biological parents for their entire childhood, and about 1/3 of children will live with a biologically unrelated parent. Lawrence discussed ways to cut down on family complexity and support noncustodial parents, which in turn benefits the kids. I appreciated his comments on the issue!

Chilton School Group 500.jpg

Chilton Middle School Visits Madison

    A big THANK YOU goes out to Mrs. Schwarz, the other teachers, and the group of 8th graders from Chilton Middle School for stopping by the Capitol today. I spoke to the group while they ate their lunches!

    If you are a teacher and you would like to tour the Capitol, please let me know and I would be happy to help facilitate the visit. I can provide "How a Bill Becomes a Law" pamphlets, Blue Books, and even a photo to commemorate the day. Room reservations are also possible so the group can store their coats or eat lunch around the tour.
