Weather Damage Update 

Earlier this week I was able to participate on a conference call with staff from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM).

Last week the Governor requested FEMA conduct a Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) related to the storms that passed through the state on July 18th-20th. The PDA is intended to quantify the damage resulting from a disaster and determine existing need. Teams will visit 18 counties as well as tribal lands. The assessment is expected to take a week to conduct. Once the PDA is completed next steps can be determined. 

 

Damage can be reported by calling 2-1-1 or 877-947-2211. If you’d prefer they also have an online submission form
 

Wisconsin Healthcare Stability Plan

Recently in a press release Governor Evers announced “2020 rates on Wisconsin’s individual health insurance market will be 3.2 percent lower on a weighted average compared to 2019 rates.” The state’s reinsurance program, started under Governor Walker, has contributed to this reduction. Governor Evers contends that absent the reinsurance program “rates in the individual market were expected to increase by 9 percent in 2020.” I am glad Governor Evers continued supporting the reinsurance plan as it was fully funded in the state budget that was recently signed. 

Online Scam

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wants to bring attention to online scams offering fishing/hunting licenses. The only place online to buy hunting/fishing licenses for Wisconsin is the DNR’s “GoWild” website. Otherwise you can visit a DNR service center or visit an authorized seller. Here is a list of service centers for our region of the state.
