Madison–Governor Scott Walker today issued the following statement on the Assembly and Senate’s passage of legislation to create the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation with bipartisan support.
“This legislation will transform the Department of Commerce into the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, an agency focused solely on business growth and job creation,” said Governor Scott Walker. “It will help re-align state government from hindering job growth to promoting it. Senator Hopper and Representative Williams and others should be thanked for helping to refocus government on jobs.”
