State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Today, the Senate approved Special Session Assembly Bill 4 with a 25-8 bipartisan vote. This bill, which I am pleased to have sponsored, will add $25 million to the Economic Development Tax Credit Program.
This $25 million will spur innovation and growth for Wisconsin companies. In turn, this will lead to more good-paying jobs for Wisconsin families that will patronize other Wisconsin companies. It truly will produce a cycle of success that will benefit everyone.
This special session set we our sights on job creation and proactive steps to make Wisconsin a better place for companies to do business. We have more measures to consider before the special session is complete, and we’ll continue to show industry Wisconsin is open for business.
