Welcome to my e-update

 Thank you for subscribing to my legislative e-update! This communication will outline what's happening in the Capitol and highlight my efforts while representing you and the state of Wisconsin. On occasion, I will also profile some of our great Green Bay area people and programs that make our community a better place. I hope you enjoy it!

Assembly Bill 325 Moving Forward

 This week I testified in support of a bill I authored, Assembly Bill 325, which relates to a harbor assistance grant for the city of Green Bay. For five decades, the City of Green Bay has advocated for relocating those coal piles in downtown. Through this legislation, we’ve got our best shot to clear up a major eye sore on our riverfront and add over $100 million in new, taxable  development in our community.  We have several additional hurdles to clear in this process, but this week's hearing was a major step forward to getting this project started. 



Sexual Assault Kits Bill Update

 Last week, the Senate Committee on Insurance, Financial Services, Government Oversight and Courts held a public hearing on legislation that I introduced which creates procedures for the collection and processing of sexual assault kits.

We owe it to sexual assault survivors and their families to ensure that local law enforcement and hospitals submit sexual assault kits to the state crime lab quickly in order to avoid any unnecessary delays. Every single assault kit that is untested represents a human being who went through an awful trauma, and they deserve to have their case fully investigated.
