Ron's Recap: May 14, 2020

WI State Assembly during COVID-19.jpg

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled in the legislature’s favor, saying that the Governor overstepped his authority and needs to go through the legislative process moving forward.

Bars, restaurants, salons, small businesses, non-profit organizations, outdoor recreation, retail stores, and all other businesses are now free to open as they see fit. 

However, local officials can put their own limits in place. Currently, the City Appleton and Brown County have extended the Safer at Home order through May 20th.

 Wisconsin is Back to Work

In Wisconsin, we have successfully flattened the curve, we have increased COVID-19 testing capacity past Governor Evers' goal, we have not overwhelmed our hospitals, and we will continue to take precautions (i.e. masks, social distancing, staying home if you're sick). Wisconsin is finally back to work!

Promoting The Wisconsin Dairy Industry in the Fox Valley 

Every legislator says they want to help dairy. I mean it! If passed, Assembly Bill 821 will save farms in the Fox Valley and strengthen our dairy industry! The bill awaits debate and a vote in the Wisconsin State Senate.

Complete the U.S. Census 

Have you completed the 2020 U.S. Census? If not, I encourage you to complete the census online here, or by clicking the image below. Once there, click on “Start Questionnaire” to begin. Then, enter the 12 digit census ID that was mailed to you in late March or early April (each household should have received at least 2 mailings with a unique census ID number on it).
If you have not received anything from the Census Bureau, you can still respond online without your Census ID number. Visit the online form and select "Start Questionnaire." Below the ID field, choose the link that says, "If you do not have a Census ID, click here."
