Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement after he signed the bill cover sheet for Assembly Bill 73. The legislation is now being sent to Governor Evers.
“It’s with great pride that I was able to take the final legislative step to officially end the Miller Park Tax. I’ve been fighting to make this happen since I began serving in the state Assembly in 2005. In fact, I authored a bill (2007 Assembly Bill 941) twelve years ago to sunset the tax. I’m glad that we’re finally seeing the end of the sales and use taxes in 2020 and that excess revenues will be returned to the counties where they were collected.”
According to Wisconsin State Constitution, the governor has 6 days (excluding Sundays) to take action on a bill approved by the legislature. Without any action, the bill automatically becomes law.
