MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Senate has passed Gov. Scott Walker's $100 million property tax cut proposal, sending it on to the Assembly.

The Senate approved the measure on a bipartisan 28-5 vote. All Republicans and 10 Democrats voted for it.

Democratic Sen. Tim Cullen, of Janesville, is one of five Democrats who voted against it. He says the true intent of the bill is to help Walker win re-election next year. Walker introduced the bill last week just three days after Democrat Mary Burke announced her candidacy against him.

Burke told The Associated Press that "no one can argue with a tax cut," but she's concerned with the growing projected budget shortfall.
