(Oshkosh, WI) – State Sen. Glenn Grothman, Republican candidate for Congress, is the only candidate in the race for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District to author legislation scored for the “Working for Wisconsin Award” that Grothman and 75 other legislators earned this session from Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC). Grothman authored one-third of the pro-business legislation that WMC considered for their legislative scorecard in the Wisconsin Legislature’s 2013-2014 session.
“My pro-business and pro-jobs record is second to none,” said Grothman. “There are two types of legislators, those that take the right votes, and those that do the hard work to actually author legislation and get it passed. As only one of 33 Senators, I’m proud to have authored a third of the bills that WMC supported and scored for this award.”
“From protecting businesses from over-regulation to overhauling the tax code, making sure Wisconsin’s employers are expanding and creating jobs is the record that I’ll take to Congress,” added Grothman.
In total, WMC, the state’s chamber of commerce, scored 24 separate pro-business and pro-jobs bills that they supported, and Grothman authored eight of those bills. Those bills include cutting taxes, reforming frivolous lawsuits, streamlining professional licensing regulations, medical malpractice reform, and reforming lawsuits against the state.

In 2011, Grothman successfully fought for the Manufacturing and Agriculture Tax Credit to be added to the state budget. In a recent release, this credit was praised by WMC as a “powerful incentive for business expansion in Wisconsin." For authoring this credit, Grothman was given the Examplar Award in 2012, the only legislator to ever earn the award.
“I’ve been out in front on just about every issue on the conservative agenda, but pushing pro-business and pro-jobs legislation stands out as one of my top achievements,” concluded Grothman. “I look forward to fighting for businesses and job growth in Congress.”
Grothman is a Republican candidate for Wisconsin’s 6th Congressional District. He currently represents the 20th Senate District in the Wisconsin State Senate. The 6th Congressional District includes the counties of Ozaukee, Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, Winnebago, Dodge, Green Lake, Manitowoc, Marquette, Columbia, Waushara, and Milwaukee.
