MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he’s still open to working with lawmakers on his half billion dollar property and income tax cut proposal that passed the Assembly and is awaiting action in the Senate.

Walker said Wednesday that he doesn’t care when the Senate gets to the bill, as long as they pass it before they leave for the year likely sometime in April.

The Assembly passed the bill on a 62-37 vote Tuesday, with all Republicans and two Democrats in support. The Assembly added a $7.5 million sales tax exemption for contractors who do work on projects for certain local governments and certain nonprofits.

Walker shrugged off a question about that change, saying “if we get 99 percent of what we want, we’ll declare victory and move forward.”
