11 New Bills Combating Opioid Abuse Signed Into Law!

This week I joined Governor Walker and fellow colleagues in Northeast Wisconsin in signing a package of bills that are part of the Heroin, Opiate, Prevention and Education (H.O.P.E.) Agenda. These bills are designed to help fight Wisconsin's opioid epidemic and were passed with bipartisan support in both the Assembly and Senate. This package of bills adds to the H.O.P.E. legislation passed in previous sessions and aims to assist addicts receive the help they need. In addition, this legislation puts more responsibilities on schools to educate kids on these issues. Addressing opioid addiction has been a team effort between the state, schools, hospitals and the communities. A few of the measures included the 11 bills passed include: expanding the "Good Samaritan Law," allowing trained professionals to administer Narcan, grant funding for treatment, funding towards new abuse facilities throughout the state, educational programs, training programs, and various counseling programs. I am proud to have supported each of these bills, which are an important step in continuing to combat devastating epidemic.

Lodge Kohler Grand Opening

This week I had the opportunity to attend the Lodge Kohler Grand Opening. What an amazing facility and exciting step forward in the Titletown District Development. The economic development and additional jobs that have been created as a result of this development are certainly great news for Green Bay. The beautiful view of Lambeau Field at Lodge Kohler is certainly something Packer fans from near and far can appreciate!
