868 WISCONSIN BLUE BOOK 1991-1992 retraining and re-employment programs must enjoy a high priority given the increasingly rapid changes in the workplace. Republicans are committed to preserving the soundness and equity of Wisconsin's Unemployment and Workers Compensation systems. These programs provide our working men and women, and their families, necessary secunty and support when they are injured or subjected to lay-offs. We urge that the current Advi- sory Council process, whereby labor and management representatives agree upon recommended revisions to these systems, be retained as a fair and nonpartisan method of responding to the changing needs of business and labor. TECHNOLOGY FOR WISCONSIN'S FUTURE Republicans call upon our political leaders to create an environment that stimulates technological progress for Wisconsin's farms and businesses. Our great University System, well educated citizenry and diverse econ- omy give Wisconsin an opportunity to become a technological leader in all fields, as is presently occurring in biotechnology. To achieve this end we must become thoughtful, responsible stewards of technological ad- vances._Republicans reject the headline grabbing, short sighted and anti-technology rhetoric engaged in by many Democrat legislators in the recent debate over bovine growth hormone. We believe that Wisconsin must encourage advances in communications technology that will allow even remote areas of the state to enter the mainstream of 21st Century commerce. We support the corridors 2020 Program, the ITFS satellite educational system and the exploration of high speed rail service, all as means of allowing Wisconsin citizens to share their goods and services, and ideas and'information, with the world at large.
