Walker to sign state budget on Sunday in Pleasant Prairie

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wis (WRN)  Among the bills Governor Walker signed into law, shortly after taking office in 2011, is a tax credit for businesses that relocate to Wisconsin. Catalyst Exhibits, then-located in Illinois, quickly took advantage of it.

“That brought 105 jobs initially up into Wisconsin and they’ve expanded since then and they’re looking at expand again,” says former Republican Senator Van Wanggaard, who authored the bill. “This is the type of momentum that is going to continue to drive Wisconsin forward.”

Walker will sign the 2013-15 state budget Sunday at the trade show exhibits provider which is now located in Pleasant Prairie.

While Wanggaard portrays the Catalyst Exhibits success story, other media reports say there may be another reason the governor decided on that location.
