GOP Senators appear to reach agreement on Walker's tax cut plan

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Republican state senators have scheduled a vote on Governor Walker's tax cut plan, an indication they've reached an agreement on it.

The vote is scheduled for Wednesday in the Legislature's budget committee. Senators have been talking about whether to keep $100 million in the state's rainy day fund, which is considered a savings account, or move it into the general fund, which is like a checking account.

The co-chair of the Joint Finance Committee, Republican Representative John Nygren, says he doesn't know what senators have agreed to. But he said Tuesday there's been no talk of actually changing the tax cuts Governor Walker proposed.

The $504 million plan the governor came up with includes property and income tax cuts.
