MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin Republicans have pushed a $250 million tax cut plan through the Legislature’s finance committee, setting up floor votes in the Senate and Assembly.

The plan would reduce income taxes by an average of $106 for most filers. and reduce property taxes for manufacturers by $45 million.

The Joint Finance Committee voted 10-4 on Monday to approve the package. All four committee Democrats opposed the plan.

The committee vote clears the way for a vote Wednesday in the full Senate.

The Assembly is expected to consider the bill during its last floor period of the two-year legislature session on Thursday.
