Walker cut taxes for families and streamlined the permitting process for builders

[Madison, Wis.] – The Wisconsin Builders Association endorsed Scott Walker in his reelection bid, citing his commitment to keeping taxes low and his efforts to streamline the application and approval process for permits. The Wisconsin Builders Association and the governor have partnered together on several important initiatives including eliminating the state portion of the property tax and retaining the historic tax credit.

Thanks to Scott Walker’s reforms, unemployment has been at or below 3 percent for eight straight months, property taxes are lower today than in 2010, and Wisconsin eliminated the state portion of the property tax. Now, Scott Walker has a plan to continue reducing the tax burden on Wisconsin families to keep Wisconsin working for generations to come.

“Thanks to Gov. Walker’s reforms, property taxes are lower and our economy is booming. Ware proud to endorse Gov. Walker because of his record of reform and know that his agenda will keep Wisconsin working for generations to come.
