Enterprise zone will help area National Guard/Reserve spouses

The spouses of  Wisconsin National Guard and Reserve members from Door and Kewaunee counties will benefit from a first-of-its-kind program.   The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has designated Wisconsin as a Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone focused on guard and reserve families.  Rebecca Deschane, Challenge Initiatives Director for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, says the enterprise zone will help spouses partner their skills with resources that can help manage a household while guard or reserve members are on active duty.



Deschane says the program will also help potential employers benefit from an overlooked resource.



The Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone initiative is part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Hiring Our Heroes program for veterans.

Would you rather see the legislature increase the gas tax and receive funding from out-of-state visitors or increase the registration fee and only get more money from Wisconsin residents?
