Ron's Recap: March 6, 2020

Calumet County Delegation for Courts Bill.jpg

After 30 years of attempts, Calumet County finally has the golden opportunity to receive an additional circuit court branch! This week, the Governor signed Assembly Bill 470 into law as Act 184! 

I am proud that this bi-partisan bill will help ease caseload backlogs and help ensure justice is served.

Calumet County, currently a one-judge county, has seen more than a 40 percent increase in criminal case filings from 2015 to 2018 and heroin and methamphetamine referrals have nearly tripled. 

Calumet County is a prime candidate for a new circuit court branch and I am extremely optimistic a judge will be allocated here in the Third Assembly District. Regardless of which counties receive additional judges, the infusion of these positions will have a positive statewide impact!

 Kimberly Receives $1 million DOT Grant

This week, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation awarded the Village of Kimberly a $1 million grant for the Railroad/Creekview Road project! I was honored to write a letter of recommendation to the Village of Kimberly for this grant.
I am excited to see the project unfold, as it will increase safety, improve infrastructure, and connect the Kimberly community! Click here or on the image below to learn more about the grant.

My Prison Contraband Bill Becomes Law 

Last Friday, Governor Evers signed Senate Bill 70 into law, which will help protect correctional officers and inmate well-being.

Act 111 makes it illegal to smuggle contraband into jail for one’s own use. Previously, it was a crime to smuggle contraband into jail with the intention of transferring it to an inmate, but not to use it for oneself.

Calumet County; A Great Place Indeed!

I am honored to represent a large portion of Calumet County, the second fastest growing county in Wisconsin.

Reminder From the DNR

Ice anglers are reminded that the last deadline in a series of March dates to remove permanent ice shanties from state waters is Sunday, March 15. Shanties must be removed from waters north of Highway 64 and all other outlying waters by the end of that day. Earlier March deadlines cover inland and boundary waters.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is urging anglers not to wait until the deadlines as warming temperatures and early spring rains could complicate removal.
