COVID-19 Update

Dear Neighbor,

In order to support your families being able to take a deep breath, turn away from constant news updates, and create a new temporary normal, my office will continue sending a daily update on the COVID-19 public health emergency and will post online on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

It is my hope that one reliable update each day will allow you to take a deep breath, oversee all that is happening in your own life and home, and have a reliable source of news you can count on to be up to date and accurate. As always, previous updates are on our website and linked beneath the graphic below. 

My greatest concerns right now are your lives and livelihoods. We are working hard to keep you and your loved ones safe, and to fight for our small businesses in an unprecedented crisis. 

In solidarity,

Rep. Robyn Vining

Letter to Congress - Support for Community
Health Centers

My colleagues and I in the Wisconsin State Legislature sent a bipartisan letter to U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in support the Wisconsin Congressional Delegation’s request to include robust funding for Community Health Centers (CHCs) in the next COVID-19 package. Health Centers need immediate investments that will help to sustain their operations during this crisis and stable, long-term reauthorization of Health Center funding.
