MADISON - Is an income tax cut coming soon in Wisconsin? We'll find out tonight. Gov. Scott Walker will deliver his highly anticipated two-year budget plan during a speech to the full Legislature tonight.
The plan will be debated by the Legislature's budget committee over the next four months, then voted on by both the Senate and Assembly sometime before it takes effect in July.
Walker has revealed many of the major parts of his proposal over the past couple weeks, including rejecting a federally funded Medicaid expansion.
While he's promised the budget will include a middle class income tax cut, Walker has yet to give the details of how that will work.
MERRILL - Pete Borchardt claims corruption in the Sheriff's Office cost him the Republican primary for Lincoln County Sheriff.
Borchardt, a Merrill police officer, lost to Sheriff's Lt. Ken Schneider by more than 400 votes in the August race. There's no Democrat on the general election ballot, so it appeared Schneider would coast into office.
But Borchardt's now running a write-in campaign. He thinks he would have won in August, if not for corruption.
"Corruption is not too strong of a word to use," Borchardt said Wednesday. "There are some things that have gone on at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office that should not go on in an organization."
