MADISON - Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke says Gov. Scott Walker is painting an overly rosy picture of the state's economy.
Burke reacted Wednesday to Walker's State of the State speech in which he called for cutting property and income taxes $504 million in light of state revenues that are $912 million higher than originally anticipated.
Burke says she would use the surplus to pay down the state's debt, target property tax relief to the middle class, and put more money into worker training.
Some Republican senators have criticized Walker's tax cuts for increasing the state's projected budget shortfall, but say a strong economy will erase that deficit.
Walker is calling for increasing worker training spending by $35 million in addition to cutting taxes.
