Governor Walker’s office issued a news release today that reads, in part:
"Today, the 2011-2012 K-12 school tax levy numbers were released for the state of Wisconsin. The total K-12 tax levy decreased by over $47 million this year. Over the last ten years the tax levy, on average, increased by $162 million each year. Over the last five years the tax levy, on average, increased by $181 million each year.
When compared to the status quo of the last five years, Governor Walker’s reforms are keeping an extra $228 million in Wisconsin property taxpayer’s pockets. In total, 269 school districts have a property tax levy lower or the same as last year and 200 school districts not only lowered their levy, but cut their mill rate."
Thank you, Governor Walker.
