From Erik Severson’s Newsletter:

On October 17th, I voted in favor of Special Session Senate Bill 1, legislation that will bring approximately $400 thousand in property tax relief to the 28th Assembly District and $100 million in property tax relief state-wide.

Erik Severson’s Assembly floor speech in favor of property tax relief.

Due to smart fiscal decisions made this session and last, property taxes continue to decrease for the citizens of Wisconsin. I have always believed that budget surpluses should be returned to the taxpayers, which is exactly what Special Session Senate Bill 1 accomplishes.

Governor Walker called a Special Session of the Legislature on providing property-tax relief by increasing state aid to school districts, with limits on district expenditures.  After this bill is signed into law, taxpayers will enjoy a total of $1.5 billion in tax relief during the past three years.

After a 27% increase in property taxes during the past decade, Wisconsin property owners deserve a break. I am proud to cast my vote in favor of a continued effort to decrease property taxes for hard-working Wisconsin families.
