Wis. Assembly Approves Business Marketing Bill

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Assembly has approved a bill that would fund a program to promote Wisconsin-based manufacturers.

The bipartisan bill would require the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to devote $250,000 into an account devoted to the program on Jan. 1, 2014. WEDC would be allowed to cancel the program any time after its first annual review.

The Assembly passed the measure 90-8 on Thursday, sending the bill on to the state Senate.
