MADISON, WI (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker's $100 million property tax cut proposal heads to the Legislature this week.
Republicans intend to move quickly on the plan, which if passed would cut property taxes on the typical home by $13 this year. The actual effect on individual homeowners varies widely across the state.
Walker unveiled the proposal last Thursday. It's slated for a public hearing Tuesday before the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee. That panel is expected to pass it and send it to the Senate later on Tuesday for a vote.
The Assembly is expected to vote on it Thursday.
Walker says he wants to sign the bill into law by the end of the week.
Walker announced the plan just three days after Democrat Mary Burke announced she was running against him.
