Tiffany Delivered Common Sense Iron Mining Reforms
MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), the State’s Chamber of Commerce, recently honored State Senator Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst) with the WMC Champion of Free Enterprise Award because of his outstanding leadership in enacting common sense iron mining law reforms.
“In the State Senate, Senator Tiffany was the single strongest advocate for iron mining reforms in our state and he deserves to be recognized for his achievements to help create high-wage jobs in Northern Wisconsin,” said Scott Manley, WMC Vice President of Government Relations.
The WMC Champion of Free Enterprise award is the highest honor the business community gives to a sitting member of the Legislature. Tiffany received the WMC Champion of Free Enterprise Award at Packaging Corporation of America in Tomahawk. Additionally, Tiffany won the WMC Working for Wisconsin Award for his 100 percent pro-jobs voting record on business legislation in the most recent session.
In the most recent legislative session, Tiffany spearheaded passage of iron mining reforms that had stalled in the Senate in the previous legislative session. Tiffany fought for passage of the reform and ensured that the bill was signed into law last year by Gov. Scott Walker.
“Whether it’s cutting taxes, cutting red tape or cracking down on frivolous lawsuits, Senator Tiffany is at the Capitol fighting for job creators to help our families have great jobs right here in Wisconsin,” Manley said.
In the most recent legislative session, Tiffany supported a $600 million income tax cut. The Senator was also a strong supporter of the Manufacturers’ Income Tax Credit that will help fortify our manufacturing sector. “Senator Tiffany is a tireless advocate for Northwoods families,” Manley said. “His leadership on job creation issues is helping to create family-supporting-jobs up North.”
WMC is presenting 76 lawmakers with the Working for Wisconsin award and has released “How They Voted,” a legislative scorecard for pro-business votes in the 2013-2014 legislative session.
The WMC scorecard is available at the WMC website.
