'Wisconsin Jobs Now Report' Released

The Wisconsin Jobs Now Report was released on Tuesday, which is a compilation of suggestions and ideas provided by small business owners and employers throughout Wisconsin. A Wisconsin Jobs Now task force held a roundtable discussion in Eau Claire on March 30, which was attended by employers throughout the 10th Senate District and Western Wisconsin. I was pleased to take part in that discussion and assisting in organizing the roundtable.

The Wisconsin Jobs Now Report includes such recommendations as streamlining state permitting processes, increasing the use of the Internet in working with the state, improving collaboration between business and higher education, greater utilization of the technical college system, and addressing health insurance costs.
