Update on Bills

Community EMS- AB 151

On October 31st, AB 151 cleared it's final legislative step and unanimously passed the State Senate. It now heads to Governor Walker to be signed into law.

AB 151 creates and defines community paramedics (CPs) and community emergency medical technicians (CEMTs). It will allow for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to operate in a non-emergency setting, under the medical direction of a physician, to provide treatment outside of a hospital. Over the last two years, my office has worked with several stakeholder groups to create a bill that we believe encourages partnerships to provide quality care for people all across Wisconsin, while providing appropriate oversight and training. We wanted to find balance while providing flexibility for these programs to truly reflect the needs that each individual community faces. Click here for more information about the bill.


Burial Mounds- AB 118

AB 118 passed the State Assembly yesterday on a voice vote. It will now be referred to a Senate Committee for a public hearing.

AB 118 is the result of the Legislative Study Committee on the Preservation of Burial Sites that I chaired last summer. The Study Committee was tasked with reviewing Wisconsin's current burial sites preservation law to determine whether it adequately balances the interests of scientists, landowners, developers and others with an interest in a burial site, including those with a kinship interest and those with a general cultural, tribal, or religious affiliation. Click here for my testimony and click more information about the bill.

Last week, I met with DOT and Hoffman Construction Co. to talk about the construction projects on the I-39/90 corridor. It was a great learning experience to see what goes on behind the scenes on these major projects! I'm happy to report that DOT shared the I-39/90 project is currently on schedule and under budget!

Good Luck Hunters!

This year, changes were made to tagging requirements for hunting. Hunters are reminded that registration of their harvest is still required for the ongoing archery season and upcoming gun deer season. Harvested deer must be registered by 5 p.m. the day after recovery. Registration can be completed online or by phone. Click here for more information on the changes.
