  In Progress Legislation


On Wednesday, June 21st the assembly voted on 2 bills I authored. I am pleased that they both passed! Below you will see the press release.  

Education bills unanimously pass State Assembly

Wisconsin State Legislature Passes AB266 and AB280 with wide bi-partisan support.


Madison –Representative Scott Krug (R-Rome) is pleased to have the Financial Literacy bill and Technical Excellence Scholarship bill pass the State Assembly today.


“As I said during the last campaign my top priority going into our next state budget was finding ways to increase support to our public schools. Currently the Governor, the State Senate, and the State Assembly all propose to significantly increase K-12 funding this session. I am pleased to see this and have worked to add legislative changes to our education opportunities as well”, said Rep. Scott Krug (R-Rome)


Today, the State Assembly unanimously passed AB280 requiring the schools of the State of Wisconsin to incorporate financial literacy into their curriculum. Seventy-four percent of the state school districts have some form of personal financial literacy. This bill makes sure all students in the state have the same exposure to these very important concepts. Rep. Krug and Rep. Jason Fields (D-Milwaukee) are pleased to have wide bipartisan support and look forward to the State Senate passing this bill soon.


AB266 also passed unanimously in the State Assembly today. The Technical Excellence Scholarship bill helps students in high school with exceptional trade skills obtain scholarships to attend our local Technical Colleges. Local school boards are able to create the criteria for selecting students and the State of WI and Technical Colleges will work together on funding the scholarships. AB266 is a fix to the original program that Rep. Krug authored “This fix will allow the program slots to fill up quicker by making some simple changes to eligibility requirements allowing more students to achieve their goals of attending Technical Colleges to obtain certification and degrees in their field of choice”, according to Rep. Krug (R-Nekoosa).


When our schools succeed, our local businesses and employers also succeed. In recent legislative sessions, I’m proud to have supported efforts to invest in worker training programs designed to help employees gain the skills they need to be successful and find good, family-supporting jobs. I look forward to continuing those efforts this session and beyond.


I also voted in favor to protect healthcare coverage of Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.Below is my press release. 


Rep. Krug Votes to Protect Wisconsinites with Pre-Existing Conditions

MADISON – Early Thursday morning, Representative Krug (R-Rome) joined his Republican colleagues in a vote on an amended version of Assembly Bill 365. The bill passed the Wisconsin State Assembly on a party line vote of 62-35. A vote for this bill is a vote to protect healthcare coverage of Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.

“In working to protect those with pre-existing conditions, I had a long conversation with a constituent from Wisconsin Rapids who was at his wits end.” Krug explained.  “ Tonight I finally had a chance to vote for HIM and get HIM options. His feedback was humbling. “May be a liberal but your focus on your constituents regardless of their politics is very impressive. We need more like you in state and national government". I will keep fighting for what's right!”

The amended bill provides protections for citizens across Wisconsin with pre-existing conditions by barring insurance providers from increasing premiums or deductibles on those who have maintained continuing coverage. This bill also directs the Office of the Insurance Commissioner to develop a plan to help those with pre-existing conditions but who have not maintained continuing coverage. With the approval of the Joint Finance Committee, the Office of the Insurance Commissioner will expand affordable insurance options and increase portability of plans.
