Governor Walker will be in Hudson today, unveiling a new border sign reinforcing his message that “Wisconsin is Open for Business.” The sign is one of several that will go up at border crossings throughout the state in an effort to encourage businesses to bring jobs to Wisconsin.
The signs are going up after the Governors of Illinois and Minnesota proposed to balance budget deficits with significant tax increases. In contrast, Governor Walker called a special session on job creation on his first day in office. He has introduced several proposals currently being considered by the Legislature that are aimed at making Wisconsin more job-friendly, saying “in these challenging economic times while [other states are] raising taxes, we are lowering them.”
Today’s sign unveiling will begin at 1:45pm at the Hudson Welcome Center, 2221 Service Road. Members of the public are welcome.
