Legislative Update

This week I attended the annual State of the State Address. I look forward to finding ways to work alongside this Administration as well as my legislative colleagues over this next session to bring forth legislation that is in the best interest of not only my constituents but Wisconsinites across the state.

Prior to the State of the State Address, the Assembly had its first floor session of 2019. This first bill of the session guarantees Wisconsinites with a pre-existing condition access to affordable health care. This bi-partisan supported legislation will now make its way to the Senate for consideration.

 
With session beginning, our office is running full steam ahead! We are happy to be introducing multiple bills that will help Wisconsinites across the state.
 
Victim Impact Statement 
Introduced last week, this bill will protect victims of crime by ensuring the confidentiality of their impact statement. If passed, the impact statement would not be released until a plea or conviction takes place, ensuring both safety and privacy for the victim.

Victim Restitution
Introduced last week, this bill ensures the restitution promised to victims of crime will be prioritized to ensure the victim receives any money owed before any other agency can collect their allotted fees.


Pro Bono DAs
A bill I re-introduced this week, with strong bi-partisan support, will give district attorneys, deputy district attorneys, and assistant district attorneys across Wisconsin the ability to privately provide legal services pro bono should they choose.
Constituent Update
Over the past few months, I have had the opportunity to meet with many constituents from across the district both here in my office in Madison and throughout the communities that they live and work in. Below you'll see a few pictures highlighting some of these events.
