Gov. Evers hosts roundtable in Kenosha on proposed tax plan

KENOSHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Governor Tony Evers held a roundtable in Kenosha Thursday, Aug. 25, to talk his plan to cut taxes using the state's budget surplus. 

The $600 million tax relief proposal aims to address rising costs due to inflation. It includes insulin prices at $35 as well as getting rid of the minimum markup on gas prices. 

The proposal also covers state income tax cuts for single filers who make less than $100,000 a year. 

"We're looking at this being a $600 million payback for the people of Wisconsin. That's a lot of money," said Gov. Evers. 

Republicans have called the plan an, "election year gimmick."
