Governor Evers vetoes tax cut bill

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Democratic Gov. Tony Evers vetoes Republican tax cut bill in early showdown with GOP-controlled Legislature.

In a letter to the State Assembly, Evers said he is vetoing the bill in its entirety because he objects to passing a major fiscal policy item outside of the biennial budget process, which begins in less than 10 days.

Evers says he is “troubled and disappointed” that the major fiscal policy was introduced and passed without bipartisan support and cooperation.

The bill would’ve made modifications to the standard deduction under the individual income tax starting with tax years beginning after December 31st, 2019.
