MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Lawmakers are moving quickly on a pair of bills cutting taxes for Wisconsin farmers by nearly $30 million a year, after Democratic Gov. Tony Evers called for the Legislature to take emergency action to help the state's agriculture economy.

The Republican-authored bills were introduced Monday and the Assembly's agriculture committee voted unanimously Tuesday to advance them after a hastily called public hearing. The bills could be taken up by the full Assembly next week, but it's unclear whether the Senate and Evers will go along with all of them.
