 Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce (WMC), the State’s Chamber of Commerce, recently honored Rep. Dean Knudson with the prestigious “Working for Wisconsin” Award at Xcel Energy in Hudson.

The award is given to legislators who stand up for jobs and improve the state’s business climate by voting 80 percent or greater in support of the pro-jobs position on the WMC legislative scorecard. WMC reports that Rep. Dean Knudson voted 100 percent to support job-creating legislation.

 “Rep. Knudson was a true-leader for job creation and voted time and again to support pro-growth policies in the Legislature,” said Kurt R. Bauer, WMC President/CEO.
