MADISON - Republican candidate for governor Scott Walker supports repealing Wisconsin's corporate income tax, a position his Democratic challenger Tom Barrett says will put the state's schools and working families at risk.

Walker expressed his support for repealing the corporate income tax, which brings in about $1.6 billion in taxes every two years, in a questionnaire by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce.

Walker has made his support for repealing or cutting a number of taxes a key part of his plan for jump-starting the state's economy.

But Barrett said the cuts will put other state-funded services like aid to schools in jeopardy and shift the tax burden onto middle class families.

Liberal group One Wisconsin Now circulated Walker's survey response Monday.
