Statement: Welfare Reform Package Becomes Law

April 10, 2018

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) has released the following statement after Governor Scott Walker signed the welfare reform package. Speaker Vos is the Assembly author of the legislation.

“I’m proud that Wisconsin is, once again, a leader for our country in reforming the welfare system. We’re helping move more people off of government assistance and into the world of work. These new laws promote accountability, encourage personal responsibility and prevent fraud and abuse. Above all, these reforms will give individuals an opportunity to find a job and forever change their lives.

“I want to thank Governor Walker for helping lead this historic effort. I look forward to seeing the full implementation of these groundbreaking reforms.”
