Volume 2 Issue 1

State Representative Janel Brandtjen Outlines

Priorities for  Remaining Session:


De-Funding Planned Parenthood:

There are three Pro-Life bills in the legislature that need to be passed and signed into law before we adjourn this session. AB 305 prohibits the sale of aborted baby body parts.  AB 310 requires the Department of Health Services (DHS) to apply for Title X funds under the federal Public Health Service Act and to distribute funds received first to the Wisconsin Well−Woman Program and public entities, including state, county, and local health departments and health
clinics, and, if there are remaining funds, to certain nonpublic entities. AB 311 requires Medical Assistance (MA) to reimburse providers for the actual cost of the drug and the standard distribution rate, thus saving over 9 million dollars.  

It has been a year since we have been exposed to the truth about Planned Parenthood's Activities.  They do sell baby body parts. They are not about women's health and they don't provide mammograms. This isn't about a war on women, its about a war on humanity and it is being waged by Planned Parenthood using your tax dollars.  


Municipal ID Cards:

As I pointed out in my last newsletter, Milwaukee County is planning on issuing identification cards to residents of Milwaukee County. I also reported that I was working on a bill to require such cards to be clearly labeled "NOT for voting proposes".

Since then, Rep. Sanfelippo and Senator Wanggaard have introduced a bill that would require such a label and I have cosponsored the measure. It is extremely important to me and my constituents that the integrity of our election process is protected.

AB 565: 

AB 565 (Rep. Rob Brooks and Senator Duey Stroebel) would change the way we fund road projects in Wisconsin. Simply put we would use federal dollars for major projects and fund the smaller projects with state dollars.  This change would allow us to avoid many costly federal mandates saving millions upon millions of dollars. Look, quite frankly, we could use the money! Right? 

God Bless Wisconsin!


                Happy New Year!
