Assembly proposal includes important reforms, tax reductions.
MADISON – The Wisconsin State Assembly released a comprehensive tax and transportation package Thursday, the “Road to a Flat Tax.” Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin strongly supports several key provisions in the proposal.
“The Road to a Flat Tax proposal will slow the growth of state government for the next decade, returning billions of dollars to hard working families and small businesses,” said Americans for Prosperity State Director Eric Bott. “We commend Representative Dale Kooyenga for his creativity and thank the many members of the Assembly and Senate whose ideas contributed to this proposal.”
Americans for Prosperity supports several provisions of the Road to a Flat Tax, including:
“This plan’s major reforms, coupled with tax cuts far exceeding revenue increases, make it worthy of consideration,” said Bott. “We look forward to fully reviewing the proposal and working with both legislative houses and the Governor’s office to enact substantial tax reform and a responsible transportation budget.”
Americans for Prosperity says it will seek at least one improvement to the proposal to limit revenue volatility that might result from the elimination of the sales tax exemption on gasoline. Bott says he appreciates that Assembly members have been open-minded about this recommendation.
