Wisconsin Assembly Republicans delivered what they called a “gesture of our goodwill” to the newly installed Democratic governor on Thursday, outlining some areas where they think they might find common ground.
In a letter delivered to Gov. Tony Evers, the GOP lawmakers said they were trying to be helpful in detailing such areas, including an income tax cut, a school funding increase and a reduction in borrowing to pay for roadwork.
The Republican letter did not put a dollar amount on how large of an income tax cut they would support or how it would be paid for.
Some of the other Republican priorities include:
— Enhancing high-speed internet access.
— Expanding the SeniorCare prescription drug program to cover flu shots.
— Working to reduce homelessness.
— Providing more options to reduce the cost of child care for working parents.
— Increasing access to clean water.
— Investing more in state-owned properties.
— Doing more to attract and retain highly qualified state employees.
