Senator Feyen On WEDC Audit

State Senator Dan Feyen says he had a chance to review the recent audit of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. Feyen serves on the WEDC Board of Directors. He says the biggest criticism was about the way the WEDC followed up with companies it gave tax credits to on the number of jobs those companies created. He says the WEDC and Department of Workforce Development differ on the definition of full-time employees. Overall Feyen thinks the WEDC is doing a good job. He says they work with partner organizations throughout the state including academic groups, community groups, clusters of businesses, and economic development organization like those in Fond du Lac and Winnebago counties. Feyen says a number of recommendations were made following the audit of the WEDC and he says those will be implemented.
