Reaction to budget bill mixed in business community
MARSHFIELD (WAOW)--Reaction to Governor Walker's budget proposal is mixed.
Marshfield Chamber of Commerce representatives tell Newsline 9 the budget repair proposal is similar to decisions private businesses make daily. "From a business standpoint, there is a serious budget deficit that the state has to deal with," said Scott Larson. "There are a significant amount of operating costs related to the state that involve personnel. You have to be able to adjust personnel costs to what you can afford. Private sector businesses have to do that all the time."
The governor's proposal focuses on public employees and not private businesses.
