WMC Statement Regarding Health Care Exchanges

MADISON — Statement from Kurt R. Bauer, president/CEO of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC), the state chamber of commerce, regarding Governor Scott Walker’s decision not to form a state exchange.

“While WMC supported the creation of a Wisconsin-specific exchange, we acknowledge that Governor Walker makes a good case for not doing so. As the state’s largest business association, our mandate is to help our members navigate through the burdensome requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). WMC will continue to work with the Governor and all other state and federal stakeholders to provide as detailed and timely information about the ACA to Wisconsin’s business community as possible.”
