Walker introduces new child tax credit in state of the state address

Walker introduces new child tax credit in state of the state address”

Scott Walker prepares for what could be his toughest reelection campaign yet, he used the annual State of the State address to emphasize legislative accomplishments under his tenure and outline an "ambitious agenda" for the future.

Walker says in excerpts released Wednesday that record-low unemployment, elimination of the state property tax and the Foxconn Technology Group project all have contributed to the successful year. In the State of the State speech, he restated the case he made during that process: that Foxconn will be good for all of Wisconsin.

Minority Leader Gordon Hintz says Walker's inaction on transportation has led to Wisconsin having the country's second-worst road system.

The governor will also address more details about his plan to close Lincoln Hills. He boasted investing into our schools, yet he failed to admit that he vetoed increasing aid to rural districts.

Leading up to the speech, Walker announced plans to stabilize the state's marketplace under the Affordable Care Act, permanently extend the state's SeniorCare program - which he previously tried to pare down - require parents to work in order to receive food stamps and provide more funding to rural schools - including allowing some districts to increase property taxes, a provision he vetoed from the 2017-19 state budget. "I look forward to working with him to get it done". "But we're not done yet".

Here's a sampling of reaction from some area legislators to Gov. Scott Walker's State of the State address. He's being challenged by a large field of Democrats, two of whom were in the audience as current members of the Legislature and another in the gallery as a statewide officeholder.

Sen. Kathleen Vinehout, D-Alma: "The State of the State should be measured by how each of us is doing in our own lives". AFP has more than 3.2 million activists across the nation, a local infrastructure that includes 36 state chapters, and has received financial support from more than 100,000 Americans in all 50 states.

"For Democrats, it's fabulous", Vinehout said.

A number of other Democrats criticized the governor for embracing ideas they said he and GOP colleagues have been slow to warm up to.

"Too little, too late", said Tony Evers, state schools superintendent and Democratic candidate for governor. "Flip-flopping, I don't think is a great re-election strategy".

Under Walker's tax credit plan, all parents in Wisconsin with biological or adopted children under the age of 18 as of December 31, 2017, would qualify for the credit.

Democrats say Gov. Scott Walker is frantically trying to improve his approval ratings with proposals like a new child rebate that would send families $100 in cash for every kid under age 18.

"We can not and we will not simply forget the last seven years", Wachs said.

"He's nibbling around the periphery of important issues, but we're not getting to the bottom of it", Wachs said.
