With the national economy in recession and state government leaders predicting a $5 billion budget deficit for the next cycle, business leaders and policymakers are proposing ideas to bolster the Wisconsin economy. Hear from the following business leaders:
- James Buchen, vice president of government relations, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce.
- Bill McCoshen, executive director, Competitive Wisconsin Inc.
- Craig Thompson, executive director, Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin.
