State Senator Tim Cullen of Janesville is throwing a little political weight behind an investment venture capital bill. He calls this the best economic development proposal legislators could pass this session. The Democrat points out venture capital-backed companies provide more than 60,000 jobs in our state already. He says the measure has some safeguards, including a $2 investment for every $1 of state money. He's also enthusiastic the plan is backed by a bipartisan colation of legislators.
