Gov. Scott Walker embarked on a "property tax relief" tour throughout Wisconsin on Wednesday, stopping in Madison to address the Senate Republican caucus.
Walker commended lawmakers for their role in lowering taxes, focusing heavily on the property tax relief provided through aid to schools and technical colleges. The governor signed into law last spring $400 million in relief to technical schools in hopes of lowering their levies.
Walker said the difference in what a typical homeowner owed for property taxes in December 2010, compared to December 2014, is $141.
The governor has committed to furthering tax cuts in his next budget.
