Bipartisan Wins for the 2019-20 Legislative Session

MADISON – A newly released memo from the nonpartisan Legislative Reference Bureau showed that once again, the Assembly worked in a largely bipartisan fashion over the 2019-20 legislative session. According to the memo, the Assembly passed 371 bills, with 94.1% of those bills receiving bipartisan support.

Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement regarding the bipartisan nature of the current legislative session:

“The 2019-20 legislative session brought with it important initiatives that have continued to move our state forward, like investing in mental health initiatives, prioritizing Wisconsin’s ground and surface water, and funding initiatives that are important to hard-working families, like education, transportation, and healthcare. By all accounts, it was a session full of successes – successes supported by both Republicans and Democrats alike.

“When we began this session under newly divided government, all eyes were on the Capitol to see how we would navigate this new dynamic. I am proud to say that we once again were able to reach across the aisle and pass measures that are important to Wisconsinites from every corner of the state.”
