Lieutenant Governor entertains Janesville business leaders

Janesville business leaders share their concerns with the Lieutenant Governor. Rebecca Kleefisch sat down with more than a dozen owners and managers for a business round table discussion Tuesday morning at Forward Janesville. Top concerns include the need for a basic skills ready workforce, a lack of tax incentives compared to surrounding states, and anticipated changes to health insurance prompted by the Affordable Care Act. Kleefisch admitted small business owners would face increased challenges and costs when it came to health care. She offered a variety of state resources to help better understand the situation. She applauded Blackhawk Community Credit Union for its efforts with financial literacy by developing a branch in local high schools. She also highlighted how a tax cut in the proposed budget might help free up more dollars in the economy. Several Janesville business owners offered reason for economic optimism talking about how opportunities for growth exist, but it's still a tight market.
