MILWAUKEE — A consortium of private and public-sector leaders Tuesday finalized an economic plan to jolt Wisconsin’s economy and guide state government out of financial crisis.
The report, “The Wisconsin Prosperity Strategy,” offers what its authors describe as bold initiatives to reinvigorate the economy and educational and political systems.
The strategy was developed over the last several months at two other economic summits in Appleton and La Crosse. About 150 people attended the final session in Milwaukee on Tuesday. Sponsors of the project include companies and trade associations, including those representing builders, counties, teachers, hospitals and Realtors.
“Whoever is elected (governor and to the Legislature Nov. 2) has a big job ahead of them,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council and one of the plan’s co-authors. “Economic growth is as much a part of the solution as spending cuts and efficiencies.”
