- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke is calling Republican Gov. ScottWalker's tax cut plan irresponsible. Walker has proposed using about $500 million of the state's projected $977million on income and property tax cuts. The Assembly is scheduled to vote onhis plan Tuesday. But Burke says it's too soon to be spending a projected surplus. She says lastyear was a good year for the stock market, but the first few weeks of this yearhaven't been as good. She says the stock market influences income taxcollections and spending, which affects sales tax revenues. Burke says that she would devote half of any projected surplus to paying downdebt. Then she would divide the remainder between property tax credits and jobtraining.
