Wis. Dems unveil job plan


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Senate Democrats have unveiled a package of tax credits they say are designed to create jobs.



Their plan calls for increasing credits for dairies, meat processors and food processors to upgrade their facilities and expanding grants for manufacturer training.

They also want to create a venture capital investment fund, provide the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Institutes for Discovery with 15 health and bioscience positions and fund 20 positions at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's School of Freshwater Science and School of Public Health.

The package has little chance of becoming law. Republicans control both the Senate and Assembly as well as the governor's office.
