The Governor’s weekly radio address  discusses “lasting property tax relief” in the proposed budget.  Sounds good doesn’t it?  Until you realize that he is talking about saving you an average of $26/year by defunding the Forestry Mill Tax.

Talk about “lasting” – look at Wisconsin’s beautiful and healthy forests!  They provide us with a uniquely Wisconsin quality of life, a life where we have clean air and water, picturesque landscapes, abounding forest recreational opportunities, and a diversity of forest industries to help keep our forests healthy and rural communities with jobs.

WWOA encourages you to express your thoughts on the Forestry Mill Tax directly to members of the Joint Committee on Finance.  The proposed budget bill is in their hands and NOW is the time to contact them.
