Walker tax cut plan to clear Assembly committee

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker's half billion property and income tax cut plan is scheduled for a committee vote, clearing the way for the full Assembly to take it up on Tuesday.

Another Walker proposal spending $35 million to bolster worker training programs and put more people with developmental disabilities to work is also scheduled for a committee vote on Thursday.

The votes come as Walker is scheduled to speak before the state chamber of commerce at its annual business day gathering. Walker is expected to tout the tax cut bills, which have found broad support among Republicans in the Assembly but has run into some trouble in the Senate.

Some Senate Republicans have said they're concerned because the proposal would increase the state's projected budget shortfall by $100 million.
