MADISON (AP) -- The Wisconsin state Senate is scheduled to vote Tuesday on Governor Scott Walker's proposed property and income tax cut plan.
The tax cut bill and one that makes $35 million available for a variety of worker training initiatives are the only proposals before the Senate on Tuesday.
Walker's proposal would reduce property taxes for the owner of a median-valued home by $131 on the bill mailed in December.
The income tax cut would reduce on the lowest bracket from 4.4 percent to 4 percent, saving the typical taxpayer $46.
Democratic critics have argued that the tax cuts need to be more narrowly focused to benefit the middle class, increase spending on a worker training programs, reduce debt, and address projected shortfalls in Medicaid and transportation funding.
