Walker still willing to work on tax cut bill

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Governor Scott Walker says he is still open to working with lawmakers on his half billion dollar property and income tax cut proposal.

The bill has passed the state Assembly but has yet to be looked at by the state Senate.
   
The Assembly passed the bill with a 62-37 vote on Tuesday. Walker said Wednesday that it does not matter when the Senate gets to the bill as long as it's done before the Senate leaves for the year in April.

Before passing the bill, the Assembly did make one change to the bill. They added a $7.5 million sales tax exemption for contractors who work on projects for local governments and nonprofit organizations.

Walker looked past the change by saying, "if we get 99 percent of what we want, we'll declare victory and move forward."
