Kleefisch: Businesses happy with state's stable business climate

Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch says she's excited about in-state tourism dollars heading into her hometown as the Democratic state convention gets underway.

But she said small businesses in Oconomowoc "are pretty excited about the stability" offered by the Walker administration, and that Dems would need to embrace that kind of jobs message to make inroads with the Wisconsin electorate -- particularly in deep-red Waukesha County.

Kleefisch, in a phone interview with WisPolitics.com ahead of the Dem convention, said business owners throughout the state know that the administration is "going to have the backs of job creators" -- lauding the budget passed by the Joint Finance Committee for providing "almost a billion dollars in tax relief."

She said business owners also need a predictable state business climate in the state in light of their concerns over uncertainty at the federal level.

Kleefisch also defended the expansion of voucher school programs in the JFC budget -- a primary target for Dems -- saying that while her kids love attending public schools in Oconomowoc, "not every mom and dad has that same opportunity."

She called the proposed statewide expansion an "expansion of opportunity for children and parents across the state."
