Pscholka Pleased With 2013 Legislative Work

A perfect voting record in 2013 is a personal accomplishment for state Representative Al Pscholka of Stevensville, but he is more proud of the work lawmakers did to curb some state spending. That work coupled with a recovery in the economy led to more revenue coming into the state than had been expected to the tune of an additional $434 million for the last fiscal year according to the Senate Fiscal Agency.


Across Lake Michigan, Wisconsin lawmakers are reportedly considering eliminating their income tax. Pscholka says the same idea is being discussed in Lansing, but he thinks eliminating the income tax would have to be coupled with a sizable increase in the sales tax. He says Lansing listened to taxpayers and addressed some of the things people told the Legislature they wanted to see done.


State lawmakers will return to Lansing in a few weeks, and Governor Snyder will deliver his State of the State address next month.
