MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin state Assembly has passed Governor Scott Walker's $100 million property tax cut proposal with broad bipartisan support.

Thursday's vote comes exactly one week after Walker unveiled the plan and sets the stage for the governor to sign the measure into law as soon as Friday.

Walker wants act quickly so the tax cut will show up on homeowners' bills in December. The cut will be $13 for the owner of a typical home this year and $20 next year.

The Senate passed the bill on Tuesday on a 28-7 vote. It cleared the Assembly 82-12.

Assembly Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca says the tax cut is nothing more than a political ploy to distract people from Democrat Mary Burke's candidacy for governor.
