Governor’s Budget Bill Addresses Disabled Business Certification Fees Issue


The Governor’s budget bill addresses an issue related to fees charged to service-disabled veteran owned business certification.

Earlier this year, DAV-Wis. raised several issues related to the certification program to Governor’s Walker’s office, including that the certification fees for disabled veteran-owned and women-owned businesses were different than for minority-owned businesses. 

Section 406 of the 2011-13 state budget bill proposed by the Governor equalizes the fees charged for certification of disabled veteran-owned, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses, in direct response to DAV’s concerns.
