Census Bureau says state's exports dropped 21.5 percent in the first six months
The U.S. Census Bureau said Wisconsin's exports dropped 21.5 percent in the first six months of the year, compared to the same time a year ago.
It's the first decline since 2001, when the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks slowed the economy.
And it's one of only a few drops in Wisconsin exporting since 1987.
Nationally, exports are down almost 24 percent.
