- Gov. Walker's administration often promises to lower property taxes.
And this year, it has.
But the cuts are pretty small. Wisconsin's budget agency predicts the average home will save $1 this year and $2 next year .
But Lt. Gov. Recca Kleefisch thinks even cuts that small still represent an important downward trend.
"Well, you can look at it this way: Would you rather your property taxes go up or down?" Kleefisch said. "Would you rather have your property taxes lower this year and then lower next year than they were in 2010? Or would you rather be on the path that they went up 27 percent over the previous decade?"
Kleefisch said lowering taxes would attract more business to Wisconsin and encourage more spending.
Kleefisch is in the Northwoods for a few days this week as part of a trip that promotes tourism in the area.
