Tony Evers: Cap corporate credit to pay for tax relief

We're going to cut taxes by ten percent for everyone making up to $100,000 and families making up to $150,000. But we're not going to do it by spending money we don't have or that might not be there in two years. I don't make promises I can't keep, and I'm not going to propose things that we can't pay for. So instead, we're going to fund tax relief for hard-working families by capping a corporate tax credit, 80% of which goes to filers making more than $1 million a year.

Kathleen Vinehout: New businesses need local services and cultural amenities

"When looking to build, relocate or expand in a state, company after company emphasizes they look for good schools, skilled workers, a transportation network, safe streets, efficient local services, clean air and water, recreation opportunities, and cultural amenities," Vinehout said. "That is where we should be spending the public's tax dollars."

Scott Walker: Put in place manufacturing/agriculture production tax credit

Manufacturing and agriculture are two of our core industries in Wisconsin. Thankfully, both are playing a big role in our economic recovery. From Nov. 2012 to Nov. 2013, we rank 7th highest in the country in manufacturing job growth. Milk production went up at double the national rate over the past year.

To keep these positive trends going, we put in place the manufacturing and agriculture production tax credit last year. Now, if you are an employer in one of these key industries, you should look at growing in Wisconsin as this credit will eventually wipe out almost all of your taxable liability. That is a really big deal because it gives you the opportunity to invest the capital necessary to help create more jobs. This program is a game changer for employers in manufacturing and agriculture.

Scott Walker: 300 rule changes from Small Business Regulatory Review

You may remember, last year, I called for state agencies to work with the reformed Small Business Regulatory Review Board to identify unnecessary, obsolete, and burdensome regulations.

In a survey, we asked employers what we can do to help them create jobs in the upcoming year and the most common answer was decrease the amount of state regulations. And they gave us plenty of feedback on rules to review.

Tonight, I am pleased to release this report, which identifies over 300 rule modifications in 218 administrative code chapters. Making these changes will make it easier to do business in the state, while maintaining the safety and health of our citizens.

Tammy Baldwin: I've stood up to Wall Street and Big Oil

Baldwin, in her introductory statement, said "Washington isn't listening to the struggles of middle class families. I've stood up to Wall Street, to big oil and to the health insurance companies."

Thompson said, "As governor I've cut taxes 91 times, and always tried to do what was right. I'm a reformer," Thompson emphasized, "and 742,000 jobs were created while I was governor. My opponent is the Number One liberal in the House and the Number One spender in the House."

Baldwin countered with the suggestion "that words like conservative and liberal have lost their meanings." During the Bush Administration "there were two unfunded tax cuts, two unfunded wars and Medicare Part D--also unfunded, for a total of $3.5 trillion," she said.

Baldwin explained the "fiscal cliff is sequestration, which means across-the-board cuts. This is not the right prescription. We need investments in education and research to grow our economy," she added.

Scott Walker: Expand relocation & economic development tax credits

Yesterday, I signed an expansion of our relocation and economic development tax credits. These measures will help our state attract and retain businesses and jobs. Although we have accomplished a lot in a short time, we should not celebrate too much the bills that have already passed. We are under no illusion that simply calling a Special Session means that all is better in Wisconsin. The fact that we needed to call a special session at all is a sobering reminder of all the work we have left to do.
