Walker promises more tax cuts in second term
Governor also says he'll require drug tests for unemployment, food stamp benefits
MADISON, Wis. — Gov. Scott Walker’s promises for a second term include cutting property and income taxes for individuals and requiring drug tests for those seeking unemployment and food stamp benefits.
He also wants to freeze tuition at both technical colleges and the University of Wisconsin System.
Walker released details of his platform on Sunday.
He told The Associated Press that his proposals can persuade the few undecided people in the race to vote for him. Polls show Walker and Democratic challenger Mary Burke running about even.
Burke is not impressed. Her campaign spokesman Joe Zepecki said Walker’s plan is nothing more than a political document designed to get him re-elected, rather than boost the economy.
