Gov. Scott Walker

Gov. Scott Walker is proposing a new tax credit for college graduates as he campaigns for re-election.

Walker's so-called “new graduate tax credit” of up to $1,000 per year for up to five years is aimed at keeping college graduates living and working in Wisconsin. This proposal is in addition to Walker's plan to freeze in-state tuition for another four years. The proposed tax credit is featured in a new campaign TV ad.
