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 posting a near-daily update on the COVID-19 public health emergency to our website and 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

Healthcare Heroes Act

HC Heroes.png 

Yesterday, I introduced the "Healthcare Heroes Act" along with my colleagues Rep. Mark Spreitzer, Rep. Daniel Riemer, and State Senator Jon Erpenbach, legislation in support of frontline healthcare workers in Wisconsin during the COVID-19 pandemic. This bill provides benefits for healthcare workers, including hazard pay, paid medical leave, state-funded COVID-19 testing and treatment for those uninsured, and insurance coverage for COVID-19 testing and treatment.  The bill also accepts the Medicaid expansion. 

As policy-makers we owe it to the public, public health, and those frontline healthcare workers to provide what they need. We have heard directly from healthcare heroes about the circumstances confronting them — now it is up to us to act on their needs and with the urgency the situation demands. This proposal comes from these workers telling us that they deserve this. We as legislators hear this, and are enacting it. 

Frontline healthcare workers will continue performing their vital roles, because it is not simply what they do, but who they are. The Wisconsin legislature needs to respond with policies to enable these heroes to serve in this unprecedented public health crisis. Wisconsin healthcare heroes are counting on us to act. Elected officials derive power from the consent of the governed, and the governed is telling us that this is what they need and this is what they deserve, so let’s get this done.
