Ron's Recap: August 2nd, 2019   

Friends of High Cliff State Park project.jpg

I am very thankful to the Friends of High Cliff State Park and all the Friends of Wisconsin State Parks groups in Wisconsin for all their hard work to improve our state parks. Check out my latest video to hear about the playground in the works by Friends of High Cliff State Park. Thanks to a generous donation, the playground is one step closer towards reality! Click here to see the latest news about the playground's future. 

Further, I am committed to helping the state parks succeed. That’s why last session, I authored the Parks Revitalization Act, which became Act 71 when it was signed into law. This bill appropriated $4.5 million for critical health and safety projects in our state parks, including High Cliff State Park. I am proud to co-sponsor a similar bill this session. I want to do more for our state parks, and these are big steps in the right direction!

 Beware of Phishing Fishing Scams

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says at least two websites are making phony offers to provide fishing or hunting licenses. After paying a fee, consumers only receive information on how to apply for a license. 

These are the only ways to obtain a valid Wisconsin hunting or fishing license:

If you have any questions about the validity of a website or sense a scam, do not hesitate to reach out to my office for support! 

 Flag Retirement Ceremony 

Do you have any old, tattered, or ready to be retired American Flags? Do you know how unserviceable American Flags should be retired? Tuesday evening, August 6 at 6:00, American Legion Post 60 of Kimberly will be conducting a formal Flag Retirement Ceremony at the Village of Kimberly Municipal building located at 515 West Kimberly Ave, Kimberly, WI 54136. The public is invited to bring your unserviceable American Flag(s) to the ceremony. 

In addition, American Legion Post 60 invites all retired or past military service members to their next Post meeting on September 19 at the Kimberly Municipal Building. 


Wisconsin Fully Funds Its Pensions

Wisconsin outranks other states when it comes to pension funding. While national public plan funding averaged 72 percent in 2017, Wisconsin Retirement System reported a market value-based funded ratio of 102.9 percent and an actuarial value-based funded ratio of 100 percent. This was not something that happened by chance, but due to sound management over the last 8 years. Wisconsin has a 103% funded ratio placing it in the #1 spot for being one of the best states to retire from nationwide!


Wisconsin State Fair 


The Wisconsin State Fair is here! Located in Milwaukee (West Allis, Milwaukee County), the Wisconsin State Fair has been an annual tradition for many Wisconsinites. For more information, including a schedule of events, list of fair food, and general information, click here or on the image above.
