Doyle says state exports an economic bright spot
Gov. Jim Doyle calls it a bright spot in the economic downturn.
Wisconsin companies exported 13 percent more goods from January - September, compared to the same time a year ago. The amount exported was a state-record $15.6 billion.
Canada is still Wisconsin's largest trading partner, with exports totaling more than $5 billion this year. That's up 16 percent from 2007.
