Governor Walker Is Keeping His Promise to Return Surplus Money Back to the Hard-Working Taxpayers

[Madison, Wis.] – Gov. Scott Walker crisscrossed the state Thursday to discuss the Ambitious Agenda he laid out in the 2018 State of the State Address and to highlight the $100 per child tax credit proposal.

Governor Walker is keeping his promise to return surplus money, created by his bold reforms, to the hard-working taxpayers. Through the child tax credit, Wisconsin will invest real money in the state’s families – just in time for back-to-school shopping in the fall.
