Wisconsin Products Thrive Abroad


Wisconsin exports went up 6.1% in 2017!

Not only is Wisconsin becoming more attractive to global companies seeking to expand or establish operations in the U.S., but existing state businesses are experiencing more success in selling their products overseas.

Wisconsin exported $22.3 billion in goods and services last year to more than 200 countries and territories across the globe. Our agricultural industry alone saw a 3.6% year-over-year increase, including a 19.9% increase in the export of dairy, eggs, and honey. Overall, Wisconsin exported more than $3.5 billion in agriculture products to 147 countries in 2017

The growth in Wisconsin’s export business is just another example showing that our reforms are working and our state’s economy is growing.

Delivering on the Promise of Tax Relief


Last week, Speaker Vos and I agreed on a tax relief package that delivers on the promise to return our budget surplus to the hardworking taxpayers of Wisconsin. This is your money.

Our proposed tax relief package offers Wisconsin families both a one-time child sales tax rebate of $100 per child and a sales tax holiday, just in time to send their children back to school.

The child sales tax rebate would provide $100 for every child living at home under 18, and on top of that, a state and local sales tax holiday would provide further tax relief to families during the first weekend of August. 

This broad tax relief package is our way of giving hardworking taxpayers another break on top of the more than $8 billion in tax relief that we’ve provided to Wisconsin families, farmers, seniors, and employers.

This is your reform dividend.

Warhawk Pride


We were proud to proclaim February 7th as UW-Whitewater Men’s Rugby Team Day in honor of their 7-player and 15-player teams winning dual national championships in 2017.

No other college rugby teams have ever won two national championships in one calendar year.

Congratulations, Warhawks!

We enjoy sharing all the great news about our state with you. It is an honor to serve as your Governor and represent the people of Wisconsin.
