 PAAW Advocacy Award 

The Professional Ambulance Association of Wisconsin (PAAW) recently presented me with their EMS Advocacy Award! PAAW is dedicated to healthy, sustainable ambulance and emergency medical service delivery in Wisconsin and has been a great resource for my office, particularly during the drafting of 2017 Act 66 – Wisconsin’s Community EMS Law. I was honored to receive this award and look forward to continuing to work with PAAW on EMS and health care related issues in the future!

First Bill of 2019 Signed into Law  

Governor Evers signed a bill that I authored along with Rep. Jason Fields (D-Milwaukee) and Sen. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield) earlier this month.

Act 15 makes common sense changes to allow the Department of Revenue (DOR) to disclose tax liability to a person who is looking to purchase a business or purchase inventory from a business. My constituents, Al and Brenda Weidmer, experienced a situation in which they unknowingly became responsible for the sales tax liability of another business when they purchased their close-out inventory, even though they had no way of knowing the liability existed under current law.

It is very rewarding to have the opportunity to advance policy ideas of statewide interest that were developed based on real people and stories from the 31st Assembly District. I am very pleased Governor Evers signed this bill into law to prevent what happened to my constituents from happening to someone else.

Summer Update 

Since the budget was passed in both houses and signed into law by Governor Evers I have been busy in the district attending local events and meeting with constituents.

Rotary

I spoke at the Walworth-Fontana Rotary club meeting in Fontana, WI and met Meghan Dykstra, one of their bright and talented college scholarship winners! 

 SA Team

I toured Society’s Assets in Elkhorn and met several members of their organization’s management team and local staff. 

Society’s Assets provides a full range of affordable services to promote living independently in the community. Assistance can range from a telephone consultation about your transportation or housing needs to staff completing simple, weekly household tasks or daily personal care, and even to a nurse setting up and administering medications or assessing, managing and teaching a client with diabetes or heart disease. Established in 1974, Society's Assets is a private, nonprofit organization.

After my office tour I was invited to job shadow a caregiver on a client appointment. A few short miles from their office, I had the pleasure of visiting with Arthur Duerst and letting him tell me how much he appreciates having the support and services provided by Society’s Assets.

WCLO RCF

Did “ewe” see me at the Rock County 4-H Fair? During the fair I attended the meat animal sale, was a guest on WCLO radio with Tim Bremmel, worked a shift at the Rock County Farm Bureau food tent, checked out the exhibits, animals and vendors and overall had a great time!
