Children and Families Committee Hearing

Yesterday in the Assembly Committee on Children and Families, I testified alongside Sen. Andre Jacque on Assembly Bill 26, Ethan's Law. Assembly Bill 26, prohibits the out-of-home placement of a child with a person with a record of a crime against a child. 

Rep. Tittl and Sen. Andre Jacque testify on Assembly Bill 26.

Tuesday Floor Session

I voted in favor of a package of bills to limit government overreach and allow for public input into the allocation of federal stimulus dollars. The Assembly approved legislation that prohibits the government from mandating vaccinations and closing places of worship.

The Assembly also voted for the Evers administration to develop a plan for state employees to return to in-person work. The bill asks for the plan to be submitted to the legislature no later than 21 days after the legislation’s effective date.

Rep Tittl shared on the floor, “this is a fundamental bill as no one should be able to prevent one from practicing their religion and worshipping the God of their choice.” The right to worship has been a fundamental right in our nation since 1791.

The Assembly approved two bills that address COVID vaccinations. One bill prohibits certain government officials from mandating COVID-19 vaccinations; the other prohibits employers from requiring a vaccination for employment. While I have gotten my first vaccination and will be getting my second in a few weeks, I believe it should be up to the individual to decide if they wish to receive the vaccination.

First Mental Health Committee Hearing

As the Chairman of the Mental Health Committee, I was thrilled to have our first hearing. Yesterday, the Assembly Mental Health Committee held an informational hearing in which we heard testimony from invited speakers regarding mental health in Wisconsin and issues for legislative consideration. I want to extend a special thank you again to those who testified.

This hearing was highly informative and brought forward many potential ideas for legislation to help Wisconsinites. All of the witnesses emphasized the impacts the pandemic has had on mental health. I look forward to working with the committee and various groups, agencies, and experts on mental health areas this session.

The committee heard testimony from the following agencies and experts:

  • Department of Veterans
  • Department of Corrections
  • Wisconsin Psychiatric Association
  • Office of Children's Mental Health
  • Badger State Sheriffs' Association and Wisconsin Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Association
  • Department of Public Institution
  • Department of Health Services
