MADISON – Representative Tod Ohnstad (D-Kenosha) applauds Governor Evers on his
announced plan to close the dark store loophole in the 2019-2020 biennial budget.
“For too long, hard working Wisconsinites and local officials have been denied the ability to
assess taxes in a way that is fair to everyone, not just wealthy corporations. In a referendum to end dark stores, 88% of Kenosha voted overwhelmingly in support to end a system benefitting the wealthiest of Wisconsinites at the expense of those who need it most. I would like to commend Governor Evers on restoring equity to our tax codes and putting Wisconsin families first.”
