Applauds Governor, Legislators for Enacting Legislation that Will Also Benefit Minority Businesses
The Wisconsin Minority Supplier Development Council (WMSDC) recently issued the following statement after Governor Walker signed into law Special Session Senate Bill 13, the Wisconsin Telecom Modernization Act;
“By enacting this bipartisan legislation, Gov. Walker and lawmakers are paving the way for investment and jobs to come to the state of Wisconsin and are ensuring that the link between corporations and minority businesses continues.
“This Act modernizes outdated regulations that are stifling business investment by allowing telecom companies to invest in new technologies like mobile broadband.
“With a modern law, Wisconsin will now be able to compete with states around the country and attract private sector broadband investment and jobs throughout the economy.
“This new law creates an environment that encourages businesses to stay and invest in Wisconsin, which benefits everyone in our state including our minority businesses. We thank Gov. Walker and the state Legislature for modernizing Wisconsin’s telecom laws and putting Wisconsin in a position to attract economic opportunity, investment, and the jobs of today and tomorrow.”
The Wisconsin Minority Supplier Development Council is an organization dedicated to developing, training and assisting minority owned businesses to obtain procurement opportunities from corporations who specifically invest and spend with diverse suppliers.
Since 1972, the Wisconsin Minority Supplier Development Council has increased procurement and business opportunities for a number of minority businesses by ensuring their ability to work in partnership with corporations in the private sector. The primary objective of the WMSDC is to provide a direct link between corporate America and minority businesses.
