MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Scott Walker announced Thursday he is calling a special session of the Legislature to consider the tax cuts he officially proposed in his state-of-the-state speech Wednesday night.
The governor detailed the half-billion-dollar property and income tax plan, and he also called for spending an additional $35 million on job training programs and doing more to find jobs for people with learning disabilities.
The tax cuts include a $406 million property tax reduction and a $98 million income tax cut. They are expected to pass in the Republican-controlled Legislature.
Walker has already ordered the state Department of Revenue to update income tax withholdings to put more money into people's paychecks starting in April.
