Democrats Give Wisconsin’s Economy a Holiday Bonus

MADISON, Wis. — As millions of federal dollars pour into Wisconsin funding projects to invest in worker training, rebuild airports, and deliver clean drinking water, Wisconsinites are celebrating how President Biden, Governor Evers, and Democrats in Congress are strengthening the state’s infrastructure and creating good-paying jobs. 

Just this week, Governor Evers invested $60 million in workforce development – announcing that projects from Eau Claire to Kenosha would receive funds to combat worker shortages – while the Biden administration invested millions in federal funds to rebuild rural Wisconsin’s infrastructure and bring clean water to families across the state. Thanks to a strong partnership between President Biden and Governor Evers, Democrats continue to build Wisconsin back better.
