Rep. Jeff Stone Legislative Update
Small Business Committee Hearing
On Wednesday, the Small Business Committee met for an informational session where we heard from leaders on what pressing matters in the Small business community are and what Universities are doing to help educate students for the competitive job market. Bill Smith, Director of the National Federation of Independent Business and Colleen Merrill, Director of the UW Oshkosh Small Business Development Center and Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation were the first two to appear.
This is the first in a series of meetings that the Small Business Committee will have. In the near future, business leaders from UW-Madison and Marquette University will present the committee what their respective universities are doing to help students enter the work force, and what the legislature can do to help business grow and to help graduates start their careers in the state.
WisconsinEye has posted a video of that hearing.
