The Ethics Board advises that a legislator not participate in any
discussions, debate, or votes on a proposed budget provision that would provide
tax credits totaling several million dollars to each of only a handful of businesses
in Wisconsin and the value of the credits to the legislator’s family could be as
much as several thousand dollars. If the proposal is incorporated in the budget,
it will not be an obstacle to the legislator’s participation in the consideration of
other budget provisions or the budget as a whole.
