Key pieces of Walker agenda get bipartisan support

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Key pieces of Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s agenda are finding bipartisan support in legislative committees.

Still, Democrats are complaining that his tax cut measures won’t do enough to create jobs or stimulate the economy.

Senate and Assembly committees on Thursday approved a bill with Democratic support that would forgive income taxes on businesses for two years that relocate to Wisconsin.

Also passed unanimously out of a Senate committee were Walker bills to cut taxes on small businesses and increase economic development credits. The bills also passed out of an Assembly committee, but with no Democratic support.

A fourth bill to eliminate taxes on Health Savings Accounts passed Senate and Assembly committees, but with all Democrats opposing it.
