Ron's Recap: October 4, 2019  

Rep. Tusler Testifies at JFC.png

On Wednesday, I testified before the Joint Finance Committee on my bill that would create 12 new circuit court branches around the state over the next three years.  I am hopeful that Calumet County would receive a new branch under my bill.

I would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy day to come down and testify for this important bill.

I would especially like to thank Judy Hartl, Alice Connors, and Pete Stier from the Calumet County Board of Supervisors, and Calumet County Circuit Court Judge Jeff Froehlich for their inspiring testimony. This bill is one step closer toward becoming law and will have a positive, statewide impact!

Testimony on the bill begins at 1:48:45 on Wisconsin Eye. You can watch the coverage by clicking here or on the image above. 

 Blue Books and State Maps

The Wisconsin Blue Book is the most comprehensive source for information about the State of Wisconsin.  This year's edition contains an important feature article, “A Hero’s Welcome,” written by Legislative Reference Bureau analyst Jillian Slaight.

“A Hero’s Welcome” is a story about the sacrifices of the Wisconsin veterans who served their country in combat only to return home to face political divisions over how their military service should be recognized and rewarded. But it is also a story about political statesmanship, as members of the 1919 Wisconsin Legislature overcame discord to enact innovative veterans legislation.

The electronic copy of the Wisconsin Blue Book is already available. You can find it by clicking here or on the image below. If you would like to reserve a hard copy of the 2019-2020 Wisconsin Blue Book, or a Wisconsin State Map, please reach out to my office, by calling (608) 266-5831 or email Rep.Tusler@legis.wi.gov.

Manufacturing in Wisconsin is a modern, technical and dynamic industry that advances the state's economy.

Cyber Secuity: Take Part To Secure Your Data 

Participating in today’s digital economy likely means your personal identifying information is stored, shared, and sold like any other good or service. By some accounts, the data storage market is estimated to grow from $56.8 billion in 2019 to $102.2 billion by 2024. This growth is driven by the constant, widespread use of smartphones, laptops, and tablets, cloud computing, and other factors.

While the storage and sharing of our personal consumer data is profitable business, keeping that data secure can be a challenge. Large scale data breaches have become common place. According to research by Risk Based Security, in the first seven months of 2019 alone, there have been over 3,800 publicly disclosed data breaches, resulting in over 4.1 billion compromised records. These are just the breaches that have been reported.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection invites the public to weigh in on key cyber security issues. To share your thoughts, you can email a comment to DATCPDataAdvisory@Wisconsin.gov, or click here for more information.
