• Republican Investments Result in Increased Affordability and Access 2020 rates on Wisconsin’s individual health insurance market will be 3.2 percent lower compared to 2019 rates. I am happy to see that the action taken by Republicans in Wisconsin is again paying dividends.
    • Representative Ballweg Response to DATCP Farm Center It is not lost on me that the DATCP Secretary-designee has chosen to play a political game of keep-away with important information regarding the actual numbers of calls that come into the Farm Center and the demand for counseling vouchers, among other services provided.
    • Rep. Ballweg Announces July Suicide Prevention Task Force Meeting The Speaker’s Task Force on Suicide Prevention will hear from experts on the mental health issues farmer's in our state are facing.
    • Legislators champion for their constituents We take being a voice for our constituents seriously, especially when it comes to developing the state budget.

Over and over again we heard the Governor talk about how he would fix the ‘damn’ roads, but this partial budget veto takes away funding that would have went specifically to fix some of the worst roads in the state.


The governor's vetoes of part of the funding directed at the Local Road Improvement program allows part of that money to now be used for special projects in Milwaukee and Madison such as mass transit and bicycle and pedestrian enhancements.

Now that a new state budget has been passed, Assembly Republicans are going to work on three Speaker task forces that will address critical issues in our state.
