Wisconsin moved into the top 10 best states for business for the first time ever, Chief Executive Magazine recently announced. Before Governor Walker took office in 2010, Wisconsin was among the 10 worst states for business with a ranking of 41. Thanks to Governor Walker’s leadership and a commitment to lowering taxes and a building a better business climate, Wisconsin has moved up an impressive 31 places to 10th best in the nation.

“We have worked hard to get Wisconsin out of the worst states for business and into the top 10 best states in the country,” Governor Walker said. “We did it by cutting taxes, putting the power back in the hands of Wisconsin workers, and enacting common sense conservative reforms. At a time when Wisconsin is joining the best states for business, we cannot afford to go backward by increasing taxes on Wisconsin families. We want Wisconsin to stay inside the top 10 best states for business.” Read the full story here.
