Contents List
Container Title
2008/056
Part 8 (2008/056): Additions, 1982-2002
Physical Description: 10.2 c.f. (10 record center cartons and 1 archives box) 
Scope and Content Note: Alphabetical subject files, speeches, and constituent correspondence, 1982-2002, of departmental secretaries Mark Bugher and Cate Zeuske. A few files pre-date their tenure. The subject files document numerous types of state taxes and tax credits, Wisconsin counties and municipalities, employers such as Cray Research, the lottery, the development of tax policy for computers and non-resident athletes, and input into the state budget on high-level policy issues. There are also files on several legal cases including the assessment of cranberry properties and the state taxes of federal employees living in Wisconsin. Negotiations about the construction and funding of Miller Park are well represented.
Access Restrictions: As received from the department, the constituent correspondence contained many letters about the taxes of individual citizens. This portion of the accession has been weeded because of its confidentiality, but material may have been overlooked. As a result, Box 10 should be considered confidential. See the Administrative/Restriction Information portion of this finding aid for details.
