WisBusiness.com: Budget-strapped Forward Wisconsin Trying to Meet Gov.'s Funding Challenge and Sell the State
By Brian E. Clark
At a time when most state agencies are facing cuts of 10 percent, Forward Wisconsin could see its budget tripled.
It all depends on how much money members of the business community will pony up to fund the quasi-public agency that markets the Badger State. If they pitch in $2 million, Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle has promised he will add another $1 million.
If less is raised, the state's portion will be diminished. Then, of course, the Legislature will have its say.
