Before joining the Wisconsin Policy Forum as its research director in 2018, Jason Stein reported on the state Capitol for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and, before that, for the Wisconsin State Journal. 

Through the Wisconsin Policy Forum, Stein dives deep into state and local government issues like the state budget, tax policy and Wisconsin's economy. He joined Wedge Issues host Jessie Opoien this week to discuss a few of those areas, including a new report on the strength of the state's unemployment fund.
