MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin farmers would receive up to a $7,500 tax break this year under a bill that's part of a fast-moving package of proposals Assembly Republicans unveiled Monday to dovetail with Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' special session call to help the state's struggling agriculture industry.

It's unclear whether the measures will have enough support to pass the Senate or be signed by Evers. The governor is reviewing the proposals and glad that lawmakers are working on efforts to help rural Wisconsin, said Evers' spokeswoman Melissa Baldauff.
