2019-2021 State Budget – Tax Increment Financing (PDF) April 4, 2019
"NAIOP-WI, Wisconsin REALTORS® Association, League of Wisconsin Municipalities, and Wisconsin Economic Development Association oppose the proposed 20% cap on developer incentives included in Governor Evers’ 2019-2021 state budget.  The proposed change would negatively impact economic development opportunities throughout Wisconsin by, among other things, limiting the use of pay-as-you-go tax increment districts (TIDs), discouraging redevelopment projects with below-market returns, and taking away much-needed flexibility from local communities."

The League's Statement in Response to the Governor's Budget Proposal (PDF) February 28, 2019
“On behalf of the places where Wisconsin residents live and work, we thank Governor Evers for this strong statement of support. From levy limits that allow local governments to stay in step with the local economy to plugging potholes and plugging Dark Store loopholes, this is truly a pro-local government budget.”
