Gov. Tony Evers today signed Senate Bill 894, now 2023 Wisconsin Act 96, which provides necessary funding to leverage federal funding for the development of Wisconsin’s biohealth and technology sectors.

“Wisconsin is a leader in the field of personalized medicine and biohealth technology, with a multi-billion dollar industry that supports 129,000 jobs across the state,” said Gov. Evers. “Last year, I was proud to announce Wisconsin was officially designated as a Regional Technology Hub—a feat that wouldn’t have been possible without Sen. Tammy Baldwin. Wisconsin’s designation as a Regional Technology Hub was just the first step, and signing this bill today signals that we are committed to fighting for critical federal funding and supporting this important industry.”

“Today’s bill signing by Governor Evers affirms our state’s commitment to the groundbreaking work that’s being done by our Wisconsin Biohealth Tech Consortium partners,” said Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes. “WEDC is proud to be part of the Consortium and to support our biohealth industry.”
