An Update from Your NFIB/Wisconsin State Director, Bill G. Smith

Date: January 18, 2016 Last Edit: January 20, 2016

Small business owners can expect a flurry of activity over the next few weeks as legislators scramble to beat the deadline for passage of bills they have introduced or been working on behalf of their constituents. So far this session over 1,000 bills have been introduced, but 75 percent of those bill introductions remain in committee.

The 2015-16 Session of the Legislature is scheduled to wrap-up over the next few months with the final general floor period scheduled in April, followed by a couple limited business floor periods in May.  An interim committee work period will run throughout the balance of the year until January when the 2017-18 Session convenes on January 3rd, 2017.

NFIB continues to work on the pro-small business agenda that includes worker compensation reform, changes in the unemployment compensation system, meaningful regulatory reform, legal reforms that will make our civil justice fairer, and battling against legislation that would mandate paid sick leave, increase minimum wage to $15 per hour, and repeal the Unfair Sales Act.
I am proud to represent your views on these critically important issues as NFIB, the state’s leading small business organization, works on your behalf.
As always, should you have any questions regarding the status of legislation or regulations that are important to you, please contact me – Bill G. Smith, State Director, NFIB Office of State Public Policy, 608/255-6083 or bill.smith@nfib.org.
Thank you for your continued support and active involvement as a member of NFIB.
