As a small business owner, I understand how seemingly small things can have a significant impact on the bottom line. Madison must pass legislation that helps build a stronger local and state economy. An economy that creates good paying jobs for workers; an economy that encourages businesses to expand and/or locate their operations here; an economy that invests in its workers; and an economy that takes full advantage of its resources.
Taxes and Government Spending
To improve Wisconsin’s economic viability, we must work to provide more tax relief, avoid new tax increases, and bring state government spending in line with our families’ ability to pay. I will continue to reform state government towards being a responsible steward of taxpayers’ money. Government must incorporate the same steps used on family budgets all across Wisconsin: pay for your most important priorities and make the tough decisions with the money that remains.
