Gov. Scott Walker highlighted his desire to cut taxes when he spoke to lawmakers last night about the new two-year state budget he asked them to approve.
The governor proposes using a current surplus to give a $106 income tax cut in each of the next two years to average families of four where both parents earn a total of $80,000 a year. He also plans to reduce the bottom three of the state's five income tax brackets.
