How well has the state legislature done, when it comes to job creation? Tom Still, President of the Wisconsin Technology Council, says so far, lawmakers in Madison have been “pretty bipartisan” in legislating for job creation. Still cites investor tax credits, Wisconsin Entrepreneurs Network and Wisconsin Angel Network as examples of legislative action which has paid off for the state’s economy, but says there’s always more that could be done.
Or redefine itself. Still says that’s where technology comes in.
The Wisconsin Technology Council, launched in 2001 as the result of a bipartisan act of the governor and the Legislature, serves as science and technology advisor to the Governor and the Legislature. It is an independent, non-profit and non-partisan board with members from tech companies, venture capital firms, all levels of education, research institutions, government and law.
