MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A public hearing on Gov. Scott Walker’s half billion dollar property and income tax cut plan has been scheduled for Wednesday before a state Assembly committee.

A separate hearing on Walker’s proposal to spend $35 million on a program to increase worker training and connect people with high-demand jobs is scheduled for Tuesday.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has said he wants to move quickly on passing Walker’s proposals, which the governor unveiled in last month’s State of the State address. The full Assembly is expected to take up the bills next week.

But things are not moving as quickly in the Senate. Neither of the proposals has been scheduled for hearings in that chamber.

The bills must pass both the Senate and Assembly in identical form before going to Walker.
