Tuesday Speaker
Rob Henken, President of the Wisconsin Policy Forum
January 31 @ 11:45 am - 12:15 pm

Milwaukee’s city and county government leaders have been pushing hard for the legal authority to ask voters to approve a 1% county sales tax to address their worsening fiscal challenges. Rotarian Rob Henken, President of the nonpartisan Wisconsin Policy Forum, will discuss the factors that have created these challenges and why the two governments fear they’re near a breaking point. He’ll also touch on the potential consequences if no action is taken, as well as other steps the two governments might take to improve their fiscal outlooks.
