Here is the transcript from this Thursday’s radio address, which is titled Ready, Set Build:
This week I announced the “Ready, Set, Build!” initiative to identify certified sites for business development in Wisconsin. For years, the lack of certified sites has been a competitive weakness in growing jobs in our state. Now with “Ready, Set Build!” job creators can come to Wisconsin with the ability to grow right away.
This initiative will increase the availability of pre-certified property ready for development, which will help attract and grow jobs in Wisconsin. Site certification will eliminate many of the delays associated with shovel-ready site identification, and ultimately increase Wisconsin’s competitiveness for business growth and job creation.
“Ready, Set, Build!” will help eliminate the lost opportunities for job creators looking to start, expand, or locate a business in Wisconsin by resolving pre-development issues involving things like clear titling, permits, zoning, or public infrastructure.
This new initiative will provide yet another opportunity for job creators to come, stay, and grow jobs in Wisconsin.
