- Half a billion dollars in tax cuts will become law today.
Governor Scott Walker will sign his tax cut bill at a farm in Shawano County.
He'll sign the legislation at Horsens Homestead Farms in Cecil.
The bill gives a large chunk of the state's 977-million dollar surplus to property and income tax cuts.
It sends 406-million to technical colleges to reduce their property tax hit.
Income taxes will be cut by nearly 99-million.
For taxpayers, the measure means a 131-dollar tax reduction for a typical home.
The average worker will save 46-dollars in annual income taxes.
Democrats criticized the bill as an election year gimmick.
Walker faces re-election in November.
