WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Senate approves property tax cuts over the next two years
Five Democrats voted no yesterday, when the Wisconsin Senate voted to cut local property taxes by 100-million dollars over the next two years. Tim Cullen of Janesville, Bob Jauch of Poplar, Mark Miller of Monona, John Lehman of Racine, and Fred Risser of Madison were the dissenters. Ten other Democrats voted for the tax relief, though some called it fiscally irresponsible. Cullen said the average homeowner would only get about a-dollar a month.
