As heard first on WLIP, State Sen. Bob Wirch is demanding a two-year suspension of a tax credit so more money can be spent on infrastructure improvements across Wisconsin. The Kenosha Democrat said the state pays some 300-million-dollars each year for the Manufacturing and Agriculture Tax Credit. He said Republicans approved the tax credit in “the dark of night” without a public hearing a few years back, disguising it as a job creation tool. However, he said it has become a giveaway to “fat cats” while manufacturing jobs across the state continue to erode. Wirch has authored letters to the co-chairs of the Joint Finance Committee as well as Gov. Walker, calling for suspension of the tax credit for the 2017 and 2018 tax year.
