Walker to Sign $100 Million Property Tax Relief Bill into Law on Sunday


The Senate passed the bill on Tuesday on a 28-7 vote. It cleared the Assembly 82-12.

BURLINGTON, Wis. (WEAU)-- Governor Scott Walker's office says the governor will sign the $100 million property tax relief bill into law on Sunday.

Walker is expected to sign it at the Rice Family Farm in Burlington, which is in Racine County, Sunday afternoon.

Gov. Walker says the Special Session Bill 1 provides $100 Million in property tax relief for Wisconsin families, farmers, seniors, and small businesses.

Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca says the tax cut is nothing more than a political ploy to distract people from Democrat Mary Burke's candidacy for governor.
