MADISON (WKOW) -- The state Assembly approved a bill to provide property tax relief to Wisconsin homeowners.
It passed the Assembly with bi-partisan support on a vote of 82-12.
The Senate passed the measure Tuesday, so it now heads to Gov. Scott Walker's desk.
The $100 million tax cut will reduce the typical homeowner's property tax bill by $13 this year and $20 next year.
MADISON (AP) -- The Wisconsin state Assembly is preparing to vote on Gov. Scott Walker's $100 million property tax cut proposal.
The measure is racing through the legislative process. Walker introduced it a week ago and on Tuesday the Senate passed it with bipartisan support on a 28-7 vote. It's expected to also find broad support in the Assembly.
Democrats have complained that the measure is more of a political ploy by Walker to help his re-election efforts next year than anything that will substantially help taxpayers. The cut will reduce the typical homeowner's property tax bill by $13 this year and $20 next year.
Republican backers say every little bit helps and the money should be returned to taxpayers.
