Republicans promise 'bigger and bolder' rural Wisconsin plan

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers speaks to Milton High School students Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020, in Milton, Wis.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Republican lawmakers are considering proposals to cut property taxes and insurance costs for farmers as part of a package to help rural Wisconsin that Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on Tuesday promised would be “bigger and bolder” than what Democratic Gov. Tony Evers put forward.

Evers called a special session of the Legislature to take up his $8.5 million package, which included a $1 million effort to increase dairy exports and the hiring of more people at the state agriculture department and University of Wisconsin-Madison extension division to work with farmers.
