First Responders in front of Assembly.jpg

Thursday was a special day in the Wisconsin State Assembly. We honored first responders throughout Wisconsin who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you first responders for the sacrifices you make!

 Rep. Tusler Visits Midwest Paper Group

I saw firsthand how recycled paper gets broken down and remade into brand new, quality paper during my tour of Midwest Paper Group in Combined Locks. I was impressed at the sheer size of the facility and how much paper they produce!

Midwest Paper Group employs about 320 workers at their over one million square foot facility. It’s important to support places like Midwest Paper Group, who provides quality, good paying jobs here in our community.

I will continue to support Fox Valley’s paper industry so they can provide quality products to Wisconsin and everywhere else! Click on the image below to watch a video with highlights from my visit.

 Interview on WHBY

On Tuesday, I had the privilege to be interviewed on WHBY during Law Talk with Herrling Clark. We talked about some of the legislation I am currently working on in Madison as well as my role as a citizen-legislator. Listen to the interview by clicking here or on the image below.

My Wetlands Mitigation Bill Passes Senate

On Tuesday, the Wisconsin State Senate voted to advance my bipartisan bill, Senate Bill 169, which enhances wetland mitigation in Wisconsin. Currently, Wisconsin faces a shortage in the availability of wetlands and wetland credits in developed and developing areas and  the cost to create wetland mitigation banks in these areas is financially burdensome.

My bill solves these issues by making more mitigation credits available sooner during development, and requiring credit purchases as close to a wetland disturbance as possible. Ensuring that mitigation occurs close to the source of the impacted wetland will help to better filter groundwater, provide critical habitat for waterfowl and other species throughout the state, and lessen flooding during extreme precipitation events.
