Wisconsin Democrats hammer at jobs theme


The State Senate passed another piece of jobs legislation today, gaining the support of all but one Republican in a 32-1 vote:

Sen. Julie Lassa, an author of the bill, said businesses from across the country are looking to locate in Wisconsin because of incentive programs like those included in the bill. And legislators in other states have inquired about the bill looking to emulate it.

“They are looking to replicate the success we’ve had in terms of getting that entrepreneurial spirit together,” she said.

Republicans sought two different lines of attack against their Democratic opponents:

Sen. Ted Kanavas, R-Brookfield, said Democrats have “dumped a load of crap on
Wisconsin businesses” during this legislative session.

“What we’re going to do today is take off one shovelful of that load of crap,” Kanavas said.

Senate Minority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, R-Horicon, said it’s no surprise that Republicans voted for the bill because Democrats “pirated” many provisions from Republican ideas.
