Governor Evers Signs Budget with Partial Vetoes

Summer School Counts Bill

Have you ever watched the progress of a bill? Here's our Summer School Counts bill. You can watch to see who chooses to co-sponsor in the State Assembly and the State Senate. We are excited to see who our first Republican will be! Watch for, "xyzRepublican has been added as a co-sponsor".

(If you do not see your Representative or Senator on this list, you can contact them by email and suggest it! It's been a busy year so far-- maybe they have been focused elsewhere and would love a note to point them to this bill! Let's make this bipartisan!)

Door to Door Vaccination Effort

President Biden announced that he will be working with community leaders to go door to door in order to get more Americans vaccinated. On Wednesday, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, and other local leaders announced Milwaukee’s participation in this effort in a press conference, which you can view HERE.

WERA Program Now Including Internet Costs

This week Governor Evers and the Department of the Administration announced that the Wisconsin Rental Assistance Program (WERA) which provides rental and utility assistance to families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic will begin to include internet cost coverage as well. 

NOTE: Residents of Milwaukee and Waukesha counties who need assistance with rent, utility, or energy assistance should contact the organization Community Advocates at 414-270-4646 or visit their website HERE
