Hi, , welcome to my e-update!

As we continue to navigate through this time I thank you for being an informed constituent of Wisconsin's 4th State Assembly District.

Conversations in Education

I recently met with the Howard-Suamico School District Board of Education and the Green Bay School District Parent/Guardian Committee. These school board members, parents, and local leaders take on the crucial role of discussing the status, challenges, and opportunities associated with our K-12 schools in the area. These discussions have always been an incredibly valuable opportunity for me. These collaborative, problem-solving get-togethers are critical to finding practical paths forward for the education of our state’s children. Thank you for the Howard-Suamico School District and the Green Bay Area Public School District for hosting these important gatherings!

Here are a few education bills I supported this session:

AB 488: Relating to: requiring school boards to make information about learning materials and educational activities used for pupil instruction available to the public

AB 617: Relating to: early admission to kindergarten and first grade at a private school participating in a parental choice program

AB 721: Relating to: the number of independent charter schools authorized by the College of Menominee Nation or the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College




Paving the Way

It’s construction season here in Wisconsin! Thankfully, the Republican budget passed by our legislature includes significant funding for transportation, so our local governments are in a great position for road repairs, construction projects, and keeping everyone safe on the road. Our budget included significant new funds for the state highway rehabilitation program, exceeding Governor Evers’ proposals to keep our highways in great shape. In addition to highway funding, our budget also included $100 million for the local roads supplemental grants program, which provides 90% of the costs for county, village, town, or city road projects. This program is vital for helping local governments complete important road safety projects.

Although everyone knows the frustrations that construction season in Wisconsin can bring, it is important to be aware of road workers during this season. Staying alert, reducing your speed, and getting rid of distractions will help keep our communities safe and our roads clear this spring!

Here are some bills I supported this session relating to transportation:

AB 238: Relating to: allocation of federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 funds for local highways and bridges

AB 432: Relating to: construction and issuance of motor vehicle registration plates

AB 97: Relating to: designating the Bart Starr Memorial Bridge
