MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is revealing more details about what his two-year spending plan for the state will look like, including the target size of an income tax cut and how aid to schools will be tied to performance.
Walker will release his budget next month but he still hasn't announced the exact date. He spoke about some elements of it during a Tuesday speech to the Wisconsin Technology Council and with reporters afterward.
Walker has repeatedly said he will include an income tax cut. Now he says that will be around $340 million over the two-year period, which may equate to about $200 for the average Wisconsin family.
He also says the state's highest and lowest performing schools will be eligible for incentive payments. Walker didn't say how much.
