Opposition to Governor Scott Walker's released budget met in Appleton Wednesday.

The group Citizen Action introduced their "Budget for All" in stark contrast to the Governor's proposal.

They say closing tax loopholes could save the state nearly $900 million to free for investments in education and transportation.

Robert Kraig, of Citizen Action, said "One is called the manufacturer and agriculture tax credit. It's going to cost 1.4 billion dollars over the next two budgets and it basically gets rid of taxation for manufacturers... it mostly goes to a handful of very wealthy business folks and there are no strings attached."

The group alleges the tax cuts were only introduced because of a massive lobbying campaign by special interests.
