Rep. Spreitzer's E-Update November 20, 2015

2015 SESSION WRAP UP

During November, the State Assembly wrapped-up 2015 with an extraordinary session on bills rewriting campaign finance law and dismantling the Government Accountability Board. I strongly opposed both of these bills.

While I've been working to fight harmful proposals such as these, I've also been hard at work to advance issues that matter to the 45th District and all Wisconsinites.

Here are a few highlights of my work so far this session:

  • I introduced AB 328, a proposal aimed at moving Wisconsin from a highly partisan method of drawing district lines to a non-partisan commission.

  • Authored AB 262, which returns local control to communities by allowing them to set their own requirements on who they hire as a city manager.

  • Co-authored the "Higher Ed, Lower Debt" bill that would allow people to refinance student loans at lower interest rates, similar to refinancing a home mortgage. This could help save students, families, and taxpayers millions of dollars and boost Wisconsin’s economy at the same time.

 

Delivering remarks at our press conference on Sept. 8 to unveil the Redistricting Reform bill.

And most importantly, I've had the opportunity to engage with my constituents via thousands of calls, emails, letters, meetings, and drop-in visits!
