Thank you for reading my weekly e-update. I'm looking forward to sharing with you what I've been up to this week.
Protecting Women in Sports Act

On Wednesday, the committee on Colleges and Universities had a hearing on Assembly Bill (AB) 195

Title IX was created out of a recognition of a biological distinction between men and women, and the need to make sure women and girls have equal opportunities to compete on a level playing field in sports. Women’s sports and achievements have once again been put at great risk of loss. Biological females are losing opportunities at titles, records, scholarships, and even participation. Additionally, by ignoring the scientific, biological fact that males have higher bone density, greater muscle mass, and often greater height, women are being put in physical danger of greater injury in competition. 

The proposed legislation would define sex as the sex on their birth certificate and use that definition to prohibit men/boys from participating in women/girls sporting teams. Parents and players must be notified by the governing body of the athletic team if the participation category would be changed from designated sex to coed/mixed sex team. The bill is to protect women in their athletic pursuits.

Summer Camp Regulatory Reform Package

Last Friday, May 21, the Summer Camp Regulatory Reform Package was signed into law. All three bills were approved with a unanimous voice vote during the May session. This package of legislation eliminates unnecessary government red tape for Wisconsin summer camps. 

Senate Bill (SB) 168, allows qualified out-of-state physicians to temporarily practice at summer camps in Wisconsin without going through the time-consuming temporary licensure process. AB 166 provides the same exemptions allowed for physicians in SB 168 to nurses. Camps across our state are struggling to recruit physicians and nurses to work at camps. While the vast majority of injuries at camps are minor, having a qualified license health provider on hand provides an extra level of care that should be encouraged.

SB 171 allows the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection to waive the licensing inspections for two out of three years for camps that have been accredited by the American Camp Association.
