Nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau: Gov. Walker budget raises taxes, fees by $48 million

But remember, Gov. Scott Walker is a fiscal “conservative.”

An analysis by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau finds that Gov. Scott Walker’s budget would raise taxes and fees by $48 million.

The report released Monday also determines that Walker proposals to bolster tax collection would bring in nearly $125 million in additional revenue over the next two years.

I wonder what the ultra-conservatives who comprise the bulk of voters in the Republican presidential primaries will think of news Gov. Scott Walker raised taxes and fees here in Wisconsin by $48 million.
