The bill violates basic principles of American law and chills participation in protest protected by the First Amendment.

Comments
Cutting $400 million in small business grants to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy and large corporations makes no sense. We oppose this in the context of the other legislation proposed.

Report Date

Comments
The bill appears to conflict with the prohibition on using ARPA funds to pay for tax cuts or rebates. And after the pandemic increased economic inequality, ARPA funds should not be used for a tax cut primarily benefiting wealthy Wisconsinites.

Comments
Our objection is based on counties being required to distribute the tax credits. The bill should be amended to require the Department of Revenue to handle all payments and administration.
