Thank you for allowing me to serve you in Madison. I look forward to spending this session addressing the challenges facing your family and our state. You sent me to Madison to deliver results. It is my solemn and continuing promise to make good on that commitment. To accomplish this goal, please let me know your thoughts on issues important to you. I am your voice in the Capitol, and look forward to assisting on state issues on your behalf. I can be reached by phone, e-mail, office hours or by attending one of my upcoming listening sessions. Thank you again for allowing me to serve you, and I hope to hear from you soon!

Listening Session


Last week, State Senator Rob Cowles and I held a budget listening session at the Ashwaubenon Village Hall. It was great to see so many people share their thoughts on the governor's proposed 2-year spending plan. Please watch for updates on upcoming listening sessions in your community.

2017-2019 Biennial Budget

Earlier this month Governor Walker laid out his budget proposal for the biennium.  I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Assembly to create a budget that will meet the needs of the constituents of the 4th Assembly District and of the state of Wisconsin.

AJR2 would eventually lead to the elimination of  the State Treasurer's Office saving the Wisconsin Taxpayer thousands of dollars per year.

AB66  would eliminate wasteful overspending on building leases by the Department of Administration.

AB69 allows terminally ill patients the opportunity to try certain experimental drugs that have yet to finish the FDA's clinical trial process. 

AB58 reduces regulatory burdens on police departments that utilize K9 officers.

AB81 enhances economic development possibilities for towns, villages and cities. 

SB77  provides Wisconsin insurance companies with expanded product options.

AB49 allows families to access certain seizure medications through their physician.
