Legislative Update 

- I am a proud co-sponsor of the recently introduced LRB-4465 prohibiting bump stocks in Wisconsin. This is a response to reports that the gunman in the recent Las Vegas mass shooting had several “bump stocks” in his possession, and might have affixed them to the firearms he used in firing onto a concert crowd of 22,000. While this bill is an important first step, we must continue to push for additional gun safety solutions such as universal background checks which a majority of Americans agree upon.

- Representative Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) and Senator Roger Roth (R-Appleton) introduced LRB-4115/1 & LRB-4410/1 for co-sponsorship. This legislation eliminates all state protections for non-federal wetlands. I can assure you I will not be co-sponsoring this legislation and I have major concerns about the impact this proposal will have on our environment. Allowing developers to fill non-federal wetlands without a permit is not only a bad idea, it once again takes Wisconsin backward.
