Representative Scott Allen (R-Waukesha) wants to hear from constituents in the 97th Assembly district regarding Gov. Walker’s newly released budget.
“We heard from Gov. Walker on the outline of his priorities in the state budget,” said Rep. Allen. “Now, as the Fiscal Bureau does their work, we will take time to hear from our neighbors in Waukesha, Genesee, and Mukwonago about their priorities. My job right now is about listening.”
The leading priorities will be education, transportation, and tax relief. Rep. Allen is excited to learn about the elimination of the statewide property tax. Other important issues addressed by this budget include workforce development and supporting families.
“There is no need for the State of Wisconsin to have a statewide property tax. The news of its demise is welcome,” said Rep. Allen. “Significantly, this budget expands the culture of work and reinforces the family as a building block for success.”
The budget proposal will now be studied by the Legislative Fiscal Bureau for further action by the Joint Finance Committee over the next few months. Rep. Allen will be holding listening sessions which will soon be announced.
