Yesterday Speaker Ryan spoke to CBS 58 Milwaukee’s Brendan Cullerton about the State of the Union and his vision to move the country forward. Watch the interview here and check out excerpts below.
Brendan Cullerton: “During the State of the Union Address, President Trump touted tax reform, which is House Speaker Paul Ryan's personal project. CBS 58 spoke with Speaker Paul Ryan about the major topics covered and what they mean for Wisconsin. House Speaker Paul Ryan says the tax reform he was key in passing, and that the president has championed, is good for Wisconsin.”
Speaker Ryan: "Assurant in Milwaukee reversed their decision to relocate overseas and they're staying in Milwaukee. Those are the kinds of positive things that we're seeing as a result of tax reform.”
Brendan Cullerton: “Trump discussed the need for improved American infrastructure during the address. Ryan says he plans on moving forward early this year, on a broader form of infrastructure.”
Speaker Ryan: "It's not just roads and bridges, but it's canals, it's harbors, its broadband, it's our electrical grid, it’s power plants and things like that."
Brendan Cullerton: “Ryan says one of his biggest goals for 2018 is giving Americans and Wisconsinites more technical skills.”
Speaker Ryan: "Because there are going to be a lot of jobs that are going to be there for people, but we have to help people get the skills they need to get those good jobs and that's a skills gap we have in Wisconsin and around the country."
