Report: Gov. Walker’s budget would raise taxes and fees by $48 million
MADISON (AP) — An analysis by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau finds that Gov. Scott Walker’s budget would raise taxes and fees by $48 million.
The report released Monday also determines that Walker proposals to bolster tax collection would bring in nearly $125 million in additional revenue over the next two years.
That law is set to begin in July 2015 but Walker is calling for it not to take effect until 2017.
Walker’s budget would also increase annual state park vehicle admission fees by $3 and nightly camping fees by $2, raising $1.9 million annually.
