Gov. Evers first SOS

Here are my major take-away's from Gov. Tony Evers State of the State speech: A commitment to expand broadband infrastructure, spur start-up business creation, provide more state funding for schools to reduce reliance on the property tax, accept more federal health care funds to reduce reliance on state tax dollars; and cap a corporate tax credit so we can cut income taxes for the majority of us. One proposal received resounding applause from both sides of the aisle: a 10 percent income tax cut for individuals and families. It is rare that legislators on both sides of the political aisle rise up to applaud a proposal in the State of the State address, but this was one of those rare occasions.

Democrats announce this years agenda

Assembly Democrats started rolling out our priorities for the new legislative session. At a press conference on January 15th, we announced our commitment to redistricting reform so that voters choose their legislators and not the other way around.
