Legislation Signed into Law!
Governor Walker, Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch, and State Representative
John Nygren (R-Marinette) traveled across Wisconsin as the Governor signed
into law 11 special session bills from the Heroin, Opioid Prevention and
Education (H.O.P.E) Agenda. In January, Governor Walker called the
legislature into special session to continue the fight against the heroin
and opioid epidemic. These bipartisan bills were passed overwhelmingly
in both houses of the legislature and will go a long way in combating the
heroin and opioid epidemic in Wisconsin.
thousands of families in Wisconsin are impacted by opioids every year. This
problem has affected people in both urban and rural areas, and continues to
negatively impact residents right here in the Fox Cities. These bills will
help to break the cycle of drug use, which is one of the first steps to
recovery. Ultimately, this legislation will help to save lives right here in
Wisconsin by getting people access to the treatment they so desperately
need. Representative Nygren and Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch have been at
the forefront of this issue, and I applaud them for the continued dedicated
efforts. I am proud to have supported every single one of these bills and
look forward to working with the representative and lieutenant governor on
these issues in the future.
session bills are another step in the right direction, but there is always
more work to be done. Wisconsin has been a leader nationally in the fight
against the heroin and opioid epidemic and will continue to be at the
forefront. If you are interested in learning more about the H.O.P.E. Agenda,

Corporation's 100th Anniversary!
I am honored to have been a retiree recognized by Oshkosh Corporation during
the parade last Saturday.
Oshkosh Corporation celebrated its 100th Anniversary with an open house and
parade! The turnout was fantastic with thousands of people from all over
Wisconsin attending the event. It was great to see generations of families
from all over the Fox Valley come together to celebrate this company where
many of their friends and relatives have worked, in several cases for
generations. Oshkosh Corporation is an example of another great Wisconsin
company that invests in its workforce and community.
I am very
proud of my time working at Oshkosh Corporation, as are thousands of
residents in our area. Oshkosh Corporation and its thousands of employees
are one more reason the Fox Valley is such a great place to call home.
Congratulations to the entire Oshkosh Corporation family on this important
