Studies by NFIB show health care costs continue to be a critical problem for Wisconsin small business owners and their employers. As a result, many small employers no longer can afford to provide a health insurance benefit, and thousands more have been forced to make dramatic reductions in coverage.
A single lawsuit can be a financial disaster for small business owners who often cannot afford a costly extended trial. Although we have been successful winning passage of key legal reforms that have helped reduce the number of personal injury and property damage claims, we continue to work for greater predictability, fairness, and a less costly civil justice system in Wisconsin.
