Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

Illinois could help Wisconsin

Business, Taxes


Illinois
legislators have gone into special session and could approve a huge corporate tax increase making the state’s corporate tax the fourth highest in the country. The move would also lower Illinois’ business climate ranking.

Illinois'  barometer of business friendliness would still be higher than Wisconsin’s, however, the Illinois ranking would be in the bottom 25 states, just like us. Our neighbor to the south would suddenly become less attractive and competitive.

It is a sad commentary that we in Wisconsin fail to take the necessary measures on our own to improve our business climate and have to rely, instead on mishaps in other states to allow us to better our conditions.
