Listening Sessions

On Monday I had joint listening sessions with Senator Devin LeMahieu and Representative Tyler Vorpagel from the 27th Assembly District. We had two listening sessions in the district, one at the Sheboygan Falls Municipal Building and another at the UW-Green Bay Sheboygan Campus.

Thank you to everyone who showed up and participated in the listening sessions. We had lively discussions on topics ranging from the Highway 23 construction project to legalizing recreational marijuana.

If you were unable to attend and would like to discuss issues that you feel are important, please know that you can always contact my office at 608-266-0656 or at

“A Hand for the Homeless” Legislation

On Thursday I joined my colleagues at a news conference to announce the introduction of the new “A Hand for the Homeless” initiative, comprised of eight bills aimed at addressing homelessness in Wisconsin. This press conference was one of five press events held throughout the state addressing this important issue.

These eight bills are taken directly from the A Hand and a Home: Foundation for Success comprehensive action plan released by the Interagency Council on Homelessness.

Last session, the Legislature passed multiple pieces of legislation addressing homelessness with bipartisan support, including the creation of the Interagency Council on Homelessness.

I look forward to continued discussion and action on the issue of homelessness, and know that we can continue to create bipartisan solutions to this bipartisan problem.


Governor Vetos Middle Class Income Tax Cut

I was disappointed to see that Governor Evers decided to veto Assembly Bill 4, the Middle Class Income Tax Cut. I was hopeful that this legislation would be the beginning of bipartisan cooperation between the Legislature and the Governor.

I continue to believe that using the surplus that is a direct result of Wisconsin's strong economy is the best way to achieve a substantive income tax cut for middle class families.

The Governor has stated that he will be using the upcoming budget process to lay out his plan for a middle income tax cut. As a member on the Joint Committee on Finance, I look forward to having a real discussion on how we can provide tax relief for Wisconsin's families while ensuring that Wisconsin's businesses and farmers are not negatively impacted.
