Three new laws will help increase Milwaukee jobs WI.
Gov. Jim Doyle recently approved the Wisconsin Green to Gold Fund, a $100 million revolving loan fund that will streamline state and federal resources in order to help manufacturing companies reduce their energy costs, improve their bottom line and create jobs.
"My top priority has been and will continue to be helping businesses create jobs and giving our workers the opportunities to get those jobs," Doyle said. "The Green to Gold fund provides low interest loans to Wisconsin's manufacturers to help them reduce their energy costs, improve their bottom line, and create and retain jobs. This is a unique program, and a great example of Wisconsin's leading role in helping businesses compete and succeed in a global economy."
Doyle also signed two other job-creating bills into law.
The first bill, Senate Bill 514, adds three projects to the 2009-2011 state building program, which is meant to expand research and science education at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
The projects include:
Construction of the Freshwater Sciences Initiative research building and the purchase of a replacement for the Neeskay research vessel.
Construction of a Kenwood Integrated Research complex.
Acquisition and redevelopment of the St. Mary's Columbia campus medical facilities.
The second bill, Assembly Bill 898, expands the trial and transitional jobs program by using federal funding to help low-income adults gain the job skills and working experience they need to succeed in today's economy.
