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.
MINOCQUA - These plants may look pretty but they're taking over our rivers and lakes. Michele Sadauskas is Oneida County's Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator. She is working to map and control the yellow iris, the plant you see here. She and two other conservation workers spent the day weeding Stacks Bay.
"They invade our wetlands. They're a really robust, aggressive plant. What they do is they crowd out our native species and make actually the wetland a lot less diverse," says Michele Sadauskas, Oneida County AIS Coordinator.
Removing yellow iris is a slow process. It takes three hours of work just to properly map and control 20 feet of shoreline.
