Rep. Dittrich was proud to once again stand for constitutional governance, accountability to constituents of the 38th, and fiscal responsibility to Wisconsinites on the floor of the Assembly Tuesday.

In the midst of this week's activity on the Assembly floor, Rep. Dittrich's first bill of this session, coauthored with Senator Duey Stroebel, passed and advanced to the governor's desk. Unfortunately for Wisconsin’s students, “the education governor” vetoed the bill on Friday.

Senate Bill 39 would have allowed virtual charter school students to participate in athletics and extracurricular activities in their home district. This was especially important for the mental and physical well-being of our students emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued news release this week indicating that the federal income tax filing and payment due date for individuals for the 2020 tax year will be automatically extended from April 15, 2021 to May 17, 2021.

As a result, the Wisconsin individual income tax return filing and payment due dates are extended to May 17, 2021. Wisconsin law provides for an extension of time and waiver of interest and penalties when the IRS extends filing deadlines during a presidentially-declared disaster.

Friends, please slow down and pay attention when you're driving, especially around schools. Thankfully, this young student had no broken bones or major physical injuries. But the outcome could have been much different.

Rep. Dittrich has been in contact with the family, the district, and local officials to discuss how to make this travel situation better for students and all pedestrians. No matter what action is taken, it will take increased vigilance on the part of drivers. Thanks for joining together to make our communities safe.


Budget Listening Sessions Have Begun!

Thank you to the engaged citizens who came out or watched online to our first budget listening session at the Oconomowoc Arts Center Wednesday night with Representative Tony Kurtz.

The next session will be held at Milford Hills at 2 PM on April 6th.

As Rep. Dittrich stated at the beginning of Wednesday night's budget listening session, developing Wisconsin's biennial budget is far more complex this time with all of the federal dollars coming in.
