Legislative visits focus on Senate Bill 811

Alliance staff and members attended Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce Business Day in Madison on Feb. 26 to hear about important issues facing the business community around Wisconsin and across the U.S. In addition to a packed lineup of speakers, the Alliance met with legislators during several Capitol office visits to share copies of the Alliance’s 2020 Policy Agenda and talk about policy issues that are top priority for the business community.

One of the issues discussed during legislative visits was the Alliance’s support for Senate Bill 811, aimed at providing local communities with tools to advance the development of workforce housing. The bill is focused around increasing workforce development through several local tools. Read more about the Alliance’s support here. (link)
