By - Jun 29th, 2015 10:36 am

MADISON, Wis. – Today, Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin, the state’s foremost advocate for economic freedom, reacted with disappointment to Speaker Robin Vos and Assembly leaders’ newly announced plan which would make little change to the prevailing wage requirement.

State Director Eric Bott released the following statement:

“We’re disappointed by Speaker Vos’s plan to leave Wisconsin’s indefensible prevailing wage requirement largely intact. Their plan fails to repeal the prevailing wage for the largest projects, where taxpayers would see the largest savings. Even worse? It does little to help small businesses compete. Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin and our network of over 125,000 in-state activists will continue to work toward full repeal and are encouraged by the many members of the State Assembly and Senate that share this goal.”
