SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - An area state senator has some mixed thoughts on the new state budget. Republican Glenn Grothman of West Bend, when speaking on Sheboygan’s Morning News Wednesday, said he likes most the cut in taxes the budget has, noting it has around a four-percent tax cut and will keep property tax increases to a minimum. He also liked the decision made by Governor Walker to veto the return of bail bondsmen to the state.
There are some things in the budget he did not like that passed, including the ability for the state to keep records of what specific government services residents use. He said some of these include those who use unemployment benefits, food stamps and free and reduced school lunches. He also did not like Walker's veto that would have prohibited UW student fees from increasing.
