Rep. Steineke Applauds Public Benefit Reforms

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader, Representative Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna), issued this statement in response to the passage of a package of five bills that will help individuals move from government dependence to independence in the Assembly today:

“We need more people to be workforce-ready. With more than 100,000 jobs available through the employment website Job Center of Wisconsin, the missing piece is connecting and encouraging workers to move into work placement and out of government dependence. I am happy to vote in favor of the legislation today that will help people find work and move towards personal independence.”
