Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, a city or village creating a tax incremental district (TID) in
an electronics and information technology manufacturing zone may incur project
costs for certain specified items, including capital expenditures for constructing or
expanding fire stations and for purchasing police and fire equipment. Such capital
expenditures may be made only for the first 84 months following the TID's creation.
This bill increases that period to 180 months.
For further information see the state and local fiscal estimate, which will be
printed as an appendix to this bill.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
