What will it take to make Wisconsin among the best places in America to live, work and do business? In a few months, a governor and legislators, with a fresh mandate from voters, will face just that question. The Badger Institute is pulling together some of the best minds in the state and the country to offer answers. We are starting to post those ideas here to provide a policy roadmap and a clear vision for the next administration.

Check back often for more research as we continue to build this policy roadmap to move Wisconsin forward.
