 Rep. Rohrkaste Applauds Action of Public Benefit Reform Committee

 Madison - Representative Mike Rohrkaste (R-Neenah) released the following statement after the Assembly Committee on Public Benefit Reform voted to advance two of his bills earlier today:

 "I'm pleased to see my legislative colleagues have taken an important step towards advancing Assembly Bills (AB) 191 and 192," said Rohrkaste. "This legislation will help to bridge the gap for those struggling with substance abuse as they work to find gainful employment."

 "Although these programs are included within Governor Walker's budget proposal, I firmly believe that moving these bills through the committee process will result in a stronger piece of public policy," said Rohrkaste. "I thank Chairman Born for his leadership in helping to guide AB 191 & 192 through the Public Benefit Reform committee."
