State Assembly Committee on Ways and Means

On Thursday, September 26, Bruce Thompson and a contingent of community representatives traveled to the state capitol in Madison to testify in favor of Assembly Bill 167 during the public hearing of the Assembly Committee on Ways and Means. The testimony lasted 90 minutes with questions and concerns readily answered. The bill now goes to a yet to be scheduled executive committee for a vote.

Assembly Bill 167 would allow Superior to have a unique small-market version economic development tool currently only available in Milwaukee. Our testimony was strong, and the committee was very complimentary of the effort to create local solutions to grow our economy without impacting statewide taxpayers.

A hearing on companion Senate Bill 157 is being scheduled in the Senate Committee on Economic Development, Commerce and Trade sometime in October.

Read more about these bipartisan bills currently in the state Senate and Assembly. The Wisconsin Ethics Commission also provides insights on organizations supporting Assembly Bill 167.
