Welcome to my second November E-Update!
Weeks of November 19th and 26th
I had the pleasure of speaking to the local Girl Scouts group. It's always encouraging talking to youth groups in the community as it is a reminder of our future generations and the great things they will accomplish!
 The past two weeks at the legislature has been busy! Here is a brief legislative update on what we have been working on:
  1. I have introduced legislation that allows the Department of Administration to allocate additional grants to municipalities for additional policing when trying to combat increases in automobile theft and carjacking. Read more here!
  2. Additionally, I have continued my work on Senate Bill 747 which further promotes free speech on UW campuses, while strengthening measures to crack down on anti-free speech policies. This recently received a bill number in the Senate, with the Assembly bill number coming in the next couple of weeks. Thereafter, we will be looking to hold a public and executive session. Read more here.

The community of Waukesha is still recovering from the horrifying events that had taken place at their previous Christmas parade. I will continue to keep them in my prayers and encourage you and your families the same. Together we are Wisconsin and together we will overcome and work together to ensure that appropriate bail levels are set.

Current Neenah Mayor Dean Kaufert recently announced his decision to not run for reelection as the Mayor of Neenah. Our community is indebted to him as he has accomplished great things for our community, I wish him the best as embarks on new endeavors!

The Santa Float is coming to Fox Crossing starting on December 6th. Check out Fox Crossing's website to see when it will pass through your street!

As many of you are aware, all sectors are experiencing great levels of unemployment, and perhaps none more than the health industry. So much so that my office receives requests looking for in-home nursing care frequently; if any nursing professional is looking for work, please reach out to my office at (608)266-5719, or email me at Rep.Cabral-Guevara@legis.wisconsin.com. Together we can take care of our neighbors.
