Wisconsin wires $60 million to Minnesota
HUDSON -- He didn't come check in hand. The money had been wired the evening of Tuesday, July 12. But Gov. Scott Walker held a press conference last Wednesday morning, July 13, to announce that Wisconsin has paid off its $60 million tax reciprocity debt to Minnesota.
The announcement that Wisconsin has paid the $59,719,000 -- due last December -- was made at Airworthy Aerospace, a Hudson company with 50 workers, about 40% of whom live in Minnesota.
