“No matter where I am in Wisconsin, I am hearing more and more concern for our economic outlook,” said WMC President & CEO Kurt R. Bauer. “Rising costs across the board and a slowing economy are real problems.”

The roundtable was part of a series of events to show forward-thinking policy solutions that rein in government spending, reduce costs for individuals and businesses, and break down barriers that are hampering economic growth.


During the roundtable, Congressman Steil heard from area executives about a variety of economic challenges. From taxes and regulations to energy and health care, employers were unified in the opinion that rising costs are harming their ability to create new jobs and raise wages.


“High costs are clobbering Wisconsin families and seniors. Local employers are struggling with costly government regulations, workforce challenges, and steep health care costs that drive prices up even more,” said U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil.
