MADISON—In response to today’s announcement by a coalition of Milwaukee area elected officials and business leaders that they will pursue legislation authorizing a 1 percent local option sales tax, state Sen. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) issued the following statement:

“I appreciate the thought and time various parties have put into the Milwaukee local funding announcement. I strongly believe Wisconsin’s overall tax burden is already too high. I will continue to listen to my constituents and to the parties that have worked on the proposal to see if there are opportunities to realize a win-win scenario for the Milwaukee area and all state taxpayers.”
