The Details Finally Come, Gov. Walker Gives Budget Address TonightSubmitted: 02/20/2013
Story By Associated Press

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.
