WHAT WE DO : GOVERNMENT RELATIONS : ANNUAL WASHINGTON, DC TRIP

Annual Washington, DC Trip

The fourth annual Forward Janesville Legislative Trip to Washington, DC will take place on March 8-10, 2017!


The main reason for this trip is to share Janesville and Rock County's legislative priorities with our Congressional delegation.  We will discuss a number of important topics with our representatives this year, including:

  • Changes to federal tax law to make Wisconsin companies more competitive both locally and globally;

  • Finding a long term, sustainable source of transportation revenue to keep projects like the I-39/90 expansion on the front burner;

  • Leveling the sales tax playing field so that local small businesses are not at a competitive disadvantage compared to online-only retailers;

  • Allowing more international students to participate in the School District of Janesville’s International Program; and

  • Making government programs that serve the citizens of Rock County (housing, public transit, worker training and criminal justice) more efficient and better funded.   

A limited number of seats on this year's trip are open to Forward Janesville members.  Please contact Dan Cunningham at (608) 757-3160 for more information.
