Wisconsin's secretary of the Department of Administration will speak about the economic priorities of Gov. Scott Walker's budget proposal at a presentation at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County.
Mike Huebsch will address the budget's attempt to balance the rising costs of health care, education, correctional, infrastructure and other needs with proposed reductions in taxes at "An Overview of the Governor's 2013-15 Budget Proposal," to be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday in the Terrace Room of UWMC, 518 S. Seventh Ave.
Walker's budget proposal emphasizes a smaller and more efficient government. Huebsch believes the answer to improving Wisconsin's economy includes encouraging entrepreneurship by lightening the regulatory burden. "To start with," says Huebsch, "we could remove taxes on small businesses so their owners can reinvest their profits rather than sending them to Madison."
This event is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Center Right Coalition, the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service, Centergy and the Wausau Region Chamber of Commerce.
