Wisconsin Governor Calls Special Session
Gov. Scott Walker issued Executive Order 129, requiring the Legislature to convene a special session to act on legislation regarding the governor’s new “Blueprint for Prosperity.”
Walker’s plan aims to lower income taxes, property taxes, and state withholding income taxes, while investing part of a $911 million surplus in technical colleges.
Walker has already ordered the Department of Revenue to update the income tax withholding and increase workers’ paychecks starting in April.
