Vos wants 'significantly' more than $3 billion in tax cuts

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he wants to cut taxes by “significantly” more than $3.4 billion in the next state budget, while remaining coy about how he wants to address major issues like funding for schools and local governments. Vos discussed how he would like to see the Legislature handle the state’s projected $6.6 billion budget surplus during a virtual event Friday hosted by the nonpartisan Wisconsin Policy Forum. Vos and Republicans for months have said they want to cut taxes, with an emphasis on further flattening the state’s income tax rates. Governor Tony Evers will release his budget on February 15, and the Legislature will rewrite it in the months after that.
