Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance Receives Most Distinguished Research Award

The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance (WISTAX) has received this year’s award for Most Distinguished Research from the Governmental Research Association, a national association of nonprofit research organizations that analyze policy at the regional and state level.

The award, given at the group’s annual conference in Pittsburgh this month, recognized WISTAX for its groundbreaking 2015 report, “Evaluating Wisconsin’s Approach to Determining Prevailing Wages,” which examined how Wisconsin calculated prevailing wages used for public sector construction projects.

The report received extensive statewide attention and was highlighted in The Wall Street Journal and Forbes. For more information, visit
