He introduced a bill in January that would send $406 million to technical colleges to reduce their property tax hit and cut income taxes by $98 million by reducing the lowest bracket from 4.4 percent to 4 percent.The end result would be a $131 reduction a median home's tax bill this December and $46 in annual income tax savings for the average worker.
