MADISON, Wis., Feb. 20, 2018—Are tolls in Wisconsin’s future? This and other questions are expected to be asked of state Sect. of Transportation Dave Ross when he gives an exclusive presentation to small-business owners at a kick-off event at the annual Business Day in Madison, Thursday, February 28.
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and the Wisconsin Restaurant Association (WRA) are inviting small-business owners from around the state to attend an exclusive, 7:45 a.m. small-business briefing, prior to the opening of Business Day, which will be held at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison.
Keynote speaker Dave Ross, the Wisconsin secretary of transportation, will brief participants on the status of building, maintaining, and funding the state’s transportation system.
“Small-business owners will have the opportunity to learn about the challenges and options for funding transportation, and whether tolling is in Wisconsin’s future,” said NFIB Wisconsin State Director Bill G. Smith. “This is an opportunity for them to have an exclusive dialogue with Secretary Ross.”
