"I just truly want to change what has happened over the last eight years and make the state great again."

This week, a Wisconsin Assembly committee approved a bill that would wipe out Milwaukee's controversial sick leave law. "It comes down to the principle," said Rep. Mike Kuglitsch (R-New Berlin). "These are private businesses that define their own benefit packages. It is not by any means an attack on people who have domestic violence in their life. Control should be within a private business, not mandated by a 9to5 group or a referendum."
Portraying it as one of just two choices, proponents of venture capital legislation introduced earlier this month touted its advantages at a business lunch Thursday. "There are two choices: Do nothing or get in the game," said Mike Kuglitsch (RNew Berlin), one of the bill's sponsors. "If we do nothing, we see nothing happen in this state. Or, we create a public/private partnership that's going to attract venture capital dollars." The legislation is a first step to deliver on Gov. Scott Walker's campaign promise of creating 250, 000 jobs in the state, Kuglitsch said. The authority would administer two programs. The Jobs Now Fund would issue $200 million in tax credits over time to insurance companies that invested in certified capital funds.
“The Wisconsin Assembly showed the sanctity of democracy last night as my colleagues and I passed Gov. (Scott) Walker's budget repair bill that will effectively put Wisconsin back on track towards economic stability. I stand firm in my support of the budget repair bill and I am proud of my colleagues to pass this important piece of legislation. I promised fiscal responsibility throughout my campaign, and I am honored to carry out my promise as a state representative.”
