Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed Senate Bill 1 on Monday, legislation that provides $504 million in tax relief over the next two years to hardworking Wisconsin taxpayers.

SB 1 reduces income and property tax rates, and eliminates income tax rates for manufacturers in the Badger State. Gov. Walker signed the bill at Horsens Homestead Farms in Cecil, Wis.

SB 1 represents the third significant piece of tax relief enacted by the Walker administration, bringing the total amount of tax cuts to $2 billion. Workers, families, and homeowners will now have more money in their pockets thanks to the efforts of Gov. Walker and the Republican majorities in the legislature.

I want to congratulate Gov. Walker for designing, promoting, and now signing Senate Bill 1 into law.

He inherited a state budget that falsely promised to spend more than Wisconsin citizens could afford. He avoided the "easy" and traditional path of yet again raising taxes and slashing budgets across the board.

Instead he reduced taxes to create more jobs and opportunities and therefore more tax revenue while reducing spending by reforming government to perform better at lower costs — specifically Act 10. Reducing the tax burden and reforming government to cost less is the path forward for Wisconsin and the nation.

Grover Norquist is president of Americans for Tax Reform, a coalition of taxpayer groups, individuals, and businesses opposed to higher taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. The coalition organizes the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which asks all candidates for federal and state office to commit themselves in writing to oppose all tax increases.
