MADISON – Today, Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin is announcing an expansion of its ad buy in support of prevailing wage repeal. The chapter will be increasing its radio buy in Milwaukee while expanding to the Green Bay media market in a continued and growing effort to educate citizens on the benefits of repealing this outdated regulation.

Americans for Prosperity State Director Eric Bott released the following statement:

“Support is building all across the state for full repeal of the prevailing wage requirement. That’s because the math behind it is simple: repealing this outdated regulation would save taxpayers $890 million. That’s a lot of money that could be better spent on schools, infrastructure or on tax breaks for the hard-working taxpayers of Wisconsin. AFP remains committed to Wisconsin taxpayers — no matter what the special interests have to say.”
