District Day

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 UW-Green Bay Sheboygan Campus and another at the Oostburg Public Library, focusing on Governor Tony Evers' $84 billion budget.

Thank you to everyone who showed up and participated in the listening sessions. If you were unable to attend and would like to discuss the budget or other issues, please know that you can always contact my office at 608-266-0656 or at 

After the listening sessions I took a tour of Sheboygan Lutheran High School where I got an update on the exciting new renovations coming to the school. There are great things happening for this school and its students, and I can't wait to see what the future has in store!

After the tour I held a round table discussion with administrators from local schools that participate in the Parental Choice Program. The administrators discussed how important this program is to the families that attend their schools, and ways that I can help them better do their job. It was an enlightening conversation and I thank them for their time and input!

As always, I encourage you to follow my updates on social media or contact my office directly with your questions.  Best wishes on your weekend!

Final Public Hearing on the Budget

On Wednesday I traveled to UW-Green Bay for the final public hearing discussing Governor Evers' budget. We heard from over 250 people discussing issues ranging from the school choice program to the need for innovation in the agriculture industry.

The next step in the budget process is to hold Executive Sessions. These sessions are where the Joint Committee on Finance members vote on whether to adopt motions brought before the committee. Motions that get approved by the committee will then be put into the version of the budget bill that gets voted on by the entire Legislature.

Ideally the entire process is done and the budget bill is ready for the governor's signature by June 30th, taking effect on July 1st with the start of the new fiscal year.
