Madison – Governor Scott Walker today issued the following statement on the Assembly and Senate passage of a tax deduction for Health Savings Accounts.

“The passage of a tax deduction for HSAs is an important step to saving taxpayers’ money and making healthcare more affordable for employees and small businesses.  Lowering costs and increasing flexibility for employers will help create an environment where the private sector can create 250,000 jobs.  I especially want to thank Senators Alberta Darling and Luther Olsen, and Representatives Bob Ziegelbauer and Dean Kaufert for their leadership on this issue.”
