Wisconsin Gets High Marks for Transparency for Economic Development

Good news!

Wisconsin has received the second-highest marks in the nation for economic development-related transparency and online access to information, according to a new report — a major boost for a state whose job-creation agency faced numerous problems in its early years.

The latest ranking from Wisconsin Public Interest Research Group Foundation and Frontier Group, both liberal advocacy organizations, underscores efforts at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. to increase transparency when taxpayer dollars are used to fund economic development subsidies.

While the state was criticized for a severe lack of spending transparency in a 2012 WISPIRG report, this year’s analysis found Wisconsin is second only to Ohio for providing online access to the state’s use of taxpayer dollars to subsidize business projects or economic development.

    Brave. Quoting a liberal group about how good Scott Walker was on economic development.

    This will make our local liberal heads explode.

    I’m not moping up the grey matter mess…

    Well it is certainly a vast improvement over the F grades of the early walker years.
