JANESVILLE (WKOW) — Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin was in Janesville Sunday to talk about rebuilding the state’s roads and bridges.
The stop was part of her ‘In Your Corner’ tour, specifically to highlight her Made in America legislation. It would require additional federal infrastructure projects be completed with U.S. made steel, iron, and aluminum.
"This is a safety issue, this is a jobs issue and it supports our economy, people who make things in Wisconsin and we make things in Wisconsin, need to get their products to market," Baldwin said.
Baldwin’s Republican challengers in the Senate race say they’re skeptical of her proposal.
The Cap Times reports a spokesperson for State Sen. Leah Vukmir says the proposal favors "big mandates and giveaways the drive up infrastructure costs." A spokeswoman for Delafield businessman Kevin Nicholson says, "if Senator Baldwin was serious about helping Wisconsin industry, she would have supported President Trump’s tax cut and jobs act."
