Effects of the Budget Bills on Working Families

Tuesday, March 15, 2011 at 8:11 PM by

What does the change to the Homestead Tax Credit mean for low-income households? How much is the proposed cut to technical colleges? How might income limits for low-income health care change? Wisconsin Council on Children and Families (WCCF) has put together a two-page summary of the effects of the biennial budget and budget adjustment bills on working families that answers these questions and more.

The new release by WCCF includes a brief, easy-to-understand synopsis of proposed cuts in tax credits, health care, child care subsidies, and transit programs, and also includes descriptions of worrisome policy changes in those programs that would shut out public input. This two-page summary gives an overview of how specific proposals would affect Wisconsin’s working families, and is just the right length to share with your family, coworkers, or friends interested in state budget issues.

The link to the summary, “Effects of the Biennial Budget and Budget Repair Bills for Working Families,” is here.
