Ron's Recap: December 20, 2019

2019 Rep Tusler and Family-05.JPG

As we wrap up 2019, I want to take a minute to reflect on all the things we’ve accomplished this year.

In January, Assembly Republicans passed a bill protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions, should the Affordable Care Act collapse or be repealed.

In June, Legislative Republicans passed a budget that:

  • Increases our investment in K-12 education by over 600 dollars per student;
  • Increases support for special education by 22%, and
  • Doubles the current funding for student mental health programs.

We have so much to be proud of in Wisconsin and Third Assembly District, and even more to look ahead to in 2020. I’m thankful for a successful 2019 and from my family to yours, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!   

 Meeting Your Neighbors 

During my last District Day, I had the opportunity to deliver Wisconsin Blue Books to numerous constituents throughout the 3rd Assembly District. I also had the opportunity to have a conversation with many who had concerns they would like to share with me. As your state representative, I am always willing to take time to talk with you about questions, concerns, or ideas you may have. Never hesitate to contact me at Rep.Tusler@legis.wisconsin.gov or (608) 266-5831!

 Election Security

This week, the Wisconsin Election Security Council held its second meeting to prepare for the 2020 election cycle.  The meeting this week focused on dis- and mis-information, ways to communicate accurate information to the public, and respond when false or inaccurate information is circulating.  The Council was formed to facilitate communication between and develop relationships amongst entities that administer and protect elections, leverage existing resources to enhance election cyber security, and develop security training opportunities.  Representatives from the Wisconsin Elections Commission, municipal and county clerks, the State DOJ, Wisconsin Emergency Management, cybersecurity professionals, members of the Legislature (including me!), and others are members of the council.

 

It is important to remember as we turn the page to 2020 that the Wisconsin Elections Commission is your trusted, reliable source for information about Wisconsin elections.  Visit https://myvote.wi.gov/en-us/ for information about how to register to vote, where your polling place is, request an absentee, and more.  Additionally, the Wisconsin Elections Commission’s website, if you’re looking for additional information, is https://elections.wi.gov/.

Progress at Foxconn 

You may have heard of Foxconn, but you might not know about the progress happening at its massive facilitiy. My colleague, State Representative James Edming, recently stopped by the Foxconn site to check out their progress. Click here to watch a short video to see just how far this project has come along.

WI Blue Book Trivia

It’s Friday and it’s once again time for some Wisconsin trivia! Last week, I asked:
Wisconsin was the first state to ratify which amendment to the United States Constitution?
The correct answer is the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote.
This week’s trivia question asks: In what city was the first Wisconsin capitol located?
Don’t know the answers? Contact my office (Rep.Tusler@legis.wisconsin.gov) to get your FREE Blue Book and find out the answer!
