Welcome to my e-update

 Thank you for subscribing to my legislative e-update! This communication will outline what's happening in the Capitol and highlight my efforts while representing you and the state of Wisconsin. On occasion, I will also profile some of our great Green Bay area people and programs that make our community a better place. I hope you enjoy it!

Information on COVID-19
Effective immediately, the state is limiting gatherings to less than 10 people to slow the spread of COVID-19, along with other guidelines affecting schools, bars, restaurants, and more. The state makes the following exceptions to the 10-person ban: transportation, educational institutions, child care, hotels, military, law enforcement, food pantries, hospitals, long-term care facilities, grocery stores, convenience stores, utility facilities, job centers, and courts. All restaurants and bars are to close dining areas effective at 5 p.m. today. Take-out and delivery are still allowed.
 The previous school closure deadline of April 6th has been changed. The statewide school closure will remain in place for the duration of the public health emergency.
The IRS announced that the U.S. government will be giving most Americans an extension on filing their 2019 income tax bills. Millions of Americans will have another 90 days to pay their bills; interest and penalties will be waived as well.

Coronavirus Guidelines

 The White House has announced new coronavirus guidlines. The goal is to mitigate the spread of the highly contagious virus during the next two weeks and help save lives.

This means taking steps to protect yourself like working from home when possible, avoiding social gatherings and washing your hands often and for at least 20 seconds. As you probably have heard, if you are out in the community, please maintain a distance of about six feet from other individuals. For more information, I encourage you to visit
