Kind in Hudson Tuesday -- calls for speeding up reform bill
There is improvement in the economy, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-La Crosse), told a small business roundtable group Tuesday morning at the UW-River Falls Hudson Center.
But every time the economy gets a leg up, something unexpected gets in the way, he said.
"The spike in energy prices is holding things back," Kind said. The surge in energy prices reduces consumer spending which has a big effect on small business, the congressman added.
