Session Update

I am pleased to report that several significant policy initiatives were recently passed in the Assembly including Welfare Reform, Juvenile Corrections Reform, and a bill package to improve opportunities and outcomes for Foster Care Youth. I will be sending more detailed information in future e-updates regarding these initiatives.


Bills Update

I have several bills that I authored currently working through the process. I am hopeful that each of them will pass to become law before session adjourns. 

AB 848- The Emergency Mental Health Access for Minors bill passed the Assembly on a voice vote yesterday. It's now waiting for final action in the Senate. Read more here.

AB 872- The Public Safety Incentive Grants bill passed the Assembly unanimously on February 15th. It's also waiting for final action in the Senate. Read more here.

AB 809- The WHEDA Bill passed the Assembly on January 23rd and will be voted out of the Senate committee today. It will then be waiting to be scheduled for final action in the Senate.


The following bills I have highlighted in previous e-updates. Each of these bills have passed the Assembly, and have been voted out of the Senate committee. They are waiting for final action in the Senate.

AB 118- Preservation of Burial Sites

AB 659- TIF Subtraction

Thanks for Visiting

Several groups have recently visited my office to share their concerns and priorities or to let me know what they are working on. I enjoy visitors and love it when people have the opportunity to come to Madison to talk to my staff and my colleagues about issues that are important to them!
