Wisconsin can't afford to waste any money from a federal stimulus plan.
Democrats in the U.S. House have unveiled their version of an $825 billion federal stimulus package. Governor Jim Doyle expects it to offer major opportunities for the state that can't be ignored. He says the projects funded under the plan must offer real long term value to the state.
Doyle spoke with business leaders from around the state Thursday, during a conference in Madison. He urged them to play an active role in helping Wisconsin's economy recover. Doyle says everyone must do their part to help turn the economy around.
Doyle says there are long wish-lists across the state for projects officials want to see funded under a stimulus plan. He says Wisconsin will be there; ready to get its share of a federal stimulus plan. However, the Governor says communities need to realize that not every project can be funded.
