===Online sales tax===

In September 2013, Nygren supported the closing of an online sales tax loophole in order to cut income taxes in [[Wisconsin]]. "Research shows that if Congress closes the online sales tax loophole and Wisconsin uses the additional sales tax revenue to cut income taxes — as the state budget provision requires — our state will see over 23,000 new jobs and an additional $7.6 billion pumped into our economy,” Nygren wrote in an op-ed piece.<ref>[http://watchdog.org/104730/nygren-closing-the-online-sales-tax-loophole-will-create-wi-jobs/ ''WatchDog.org'', "Closing online sales tax loophole will create WI jobs," September 6, 2013]</ref>

Issues

Legislation sponsored in 2009 includes:

  • AJR-51 Sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution claimed; federal mandates provision
  • AR-7 Rate increases re sales tax, income tax, or franchise tax: two-thirds majority vote in Assembly required for passage, concurrence, and adoption

For a full listing of sponsored legislation and details see the House site.

Online sales tax

In September 2013, Nygren supported the closing of an online sales tax loophole in order to cut income taxes in Wisconsin. "Research shows that if Congress closes the online sales tax loophole and Wisconsin uses the additional sales tax revenue to cut income taxes — as the state budget provision requires — our state will see over 23,000 new jobs and an additional $7.6 billion pumped into our economy,” Nygren wrote in an op-ed piece.[2]

Campaign themes

2012

Nygren's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Jobs & The Economy - "We must invest in our people to ensure that they are properly trained for the jobs of today, and tomorrow. I support tax credits for employer assisted higher education so that employers might invest in its employees."
  • Taxes - "Reducing our tax burden is a top priority. I will work to eliminate job and innovation killing taxes such as the Wisconsin’s Death Tax and Internet Tax."
  • Government Spending - "A good place to start saving taxpayer money is to stop giving taxpayer-funded benefits (including free College tuition) to illegal aliens. I support legislation, vetoed by Governor Doyle, to stop illegal aliens from raiding our tax dollars."
  • Healthcare - "People need access to information on hospitals and doctors in order to be smart consumers. Giving more power to health care users will help keep costs down as providers compete for their business. I will continue to support legislation that would require disclosure of these costs to you, the consumer."
  • Gun rights - "I am a strong defender of the right of individuals to protect themselves, I oppose efforts by those who would trample on our constitutionally protected rights to keep and bear arms."
  • Ethics and Campaign Finance - "Open, honest government is the only way to combat unethical political behavior. One way to ensure that our system is clean is full disclosure. If everyone can see what elected officials are doing, unethical behavior is reduced."

2011 recall

See also: Recall of Wisconsin State Senators (2011) and Dave Hansen recall, Wisconsin State Senate (2011)

Nygren announced on May 10 that he would run against Democratic state Sen. Dave Hansen in a recall election.[7] Mary Scray, vice chair of the Brown County Board, had considered running, but endorsed Nygren instead.[8][9] About 18,872 signatures were filed against Hansen on April 21, seeking his recall.

In announcing his candidacy, Nygren criticized Hansen for fleeing to Illinois to prevent a vote on the Scott Walker Budget Repair Bill. Nygren said Hansen "walked off the job, fled the state of Wisconsin, and literally turned his back on the people he swore an oath to represent."[10]

David VanderLeest, who organized the recall campaign, also declared for the seat.[11] VanderLeest and Nygren were to face off in a primary on July 19, with the winner facing Hansen in the recall on August 16. However, Nygren was removed from the ballot for insufficient valid signatures on his nomination papers. He contested the decision in circuit court, but it was upheld.[12]

Nominating papers challenged

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin filed challenges against the nominating papers of Nygren, Kim Simac, Robert Lussow and David VanderLeest on June 24. The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board considered the challenges on June 27,[13] certifying all of the candidates except for Nygren. While he turned in 424, the Board found only 398 of those to be valid, two short of the 400 necessary to make the ballot.[14]

Nygren did not file any correcting affidavits by the 27th, as was required by GAB regulations. Additionally, there was no explanatory response for controversial signatures. Nygren’s response to the challenges did contain many affidavits and responses, but did not seemingly cover all of the challenges filed by the Democratic Party. GAB staff used google maps and their laptops to go one-by-one through many of the signature challenges during the meeting. Before the board officially voted to certify only 398 signatures, the attorney for Nygren argued that Nygren should still be certified because two signatures is so minute, and that the policy should be one of the utmost ballot access.

Nygren appealed the GAB decision in circuit court,[15] but the original decision was upheld. Nygren blamed the outcome on “Democrat-appointed GAB staff that has constantly worked against me as I defended myself from the Democratic Party’s frivolous challenges.”[16]

Documents

Certification challenge delays

On May 27, 2011, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board announced it would be unable to consider the recall petitions for the three Democratic incumbents at the May 31, 2011 meeting. Citing "numerous factual and legal issues," the Board said in its statement that more time is needed to ensure that a complete record will be available for examination -- particularly since the decision will likely be appealed to the courts.[17]

In its release, the GAB officials said they do not expect to be able to hold a hearing on the recalls of Democratic incumbents until the week of June 6. This raises potential legal issues, as the initial extension granted to GAB for certification required it to ultimately make determinations before June 3.[17]

The board went ahead with hearings on May 31 for the recalls of Republican incumbents Sheila Harsdorf, Robert Cowles and Alberta Darling.[18] Officials released a 125-page memo on May 27, 2011 concerning the signatures and legal challenges.

The GAB filed a brief on June 1 asking the court for a one-week extension, which would give them until June 10 to finish working on the three Democratic recalls. The case was heard in Dane County Court at 1:30 pm on Friday, June 3.[19][20] Dane County Judge John Markson ruled that there was good cause for the extension, and that the GAB did not violate any rules by taking up the petitions out of order.[21]

Ultimately, on June 8, after nearly 9 hours of deliberations, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board certified the recalls of three Democratic incumbents and set an initial election for July 19.[22]
