Wauwatosa, WI- The Wisconsin Conservative Digest released the following statement in support of the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce “Back to Business Plan”.
Gov. Evers shelter at home order takes an arbitrary, one size fits all approach across all regions of our state. His Badger Bounce Back plan would even further decimate our small businesses and would turn a temporary unemployment issue to a permeant one. The protest across our state is a directed result of Gov. Evers’s failure to communicate a realistic plan.
Choosing between a complete shutdown and lifting all restrictions are false choices.
We support and applaud the Back to Business Plan introduced by the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce. WMC has a plan with realistic goals that will allow businesses in our state to safely reopen. The data-driven plan takes a region approach when understanding the impacts COVID-19 has across our state. As we know from the county by county data, COVID-19 cases are primarily concentrated in certain densely populated regions in our state. 48% of all COVID-19 cases are in Milwaukee County.
The Back to Business Plan is transparent and takes into account regional health-care capacity, population density, and the recommendations of healthcare professionals and the CDC.

We will be engaging our team of conservative activists to get behind the plan so Wisconsin can be open for business.
