(Madison, WI)— This afternoon, State Senator Brad Pfaff (D-Onalaska) released the following statement regarding Governor Tony Evers’ proposal to use Wisconsin’s unprecedented $3.8 billion budget surplus to deliver tax rebates to working families, address rising costs, and expand our workforce.
“People in western Wisconsin understand the value of a hard day’s work. This proposal will expand our workforce and make vital investments in the future of our state.”
“With unemployment in Wisconsin at a historic low, we must continue to provide solutions to rising costs and further strengthen our workforce. I was proud to support a $2 billion middle-class tax cut as part of last year’s budget, and I continue to advocate for tax relief for working families.”
Governor Evers’ proposal invests nearly $1.7 billion in revenue surplus to provide a $150 rebate to every Wisconsin resident, $131.8 million in tax relief to caregivers and families, and almost $750 million in education without raising property taxes.
