MADISON, Wis. -

Gov. Scott Walker said it's reasonable to expect an income tax cut he plans to propose in the state budget will be around $342 million.

Walker said how much that level of cut would mean to taxpayers is still being worked out. He made his comments Tuesday following a speech at the Wisconsin Technology Council.

Walker said the tax cut would come out to about a $200 savings per family, but details were still being worked out as to how it would be applied to various income levels.

The $342 million Walker is eyeing for the income tax cut is how much money the state is projected to have in a budget surplus.

Walker is expected to release his budget next month.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
