Rep. Ohnstad Receives 100% Lifetime Voting Record from Wisconsin AFL-CIO Voting
At the conclusion of each legislative session, the Wisconsin AFL-CIO evaluates key votes taken by members of the state legislature. Each legislator is giving a rating, which indicates how much their votes supported Wisconsin's working people. This session, just like last session, I was proud to have a 100% record and maintain my 100% lifetime voting record for workers.
Wisconsin & Tariffs
In May, President Trump announced new tariffs on steel and aluminum from the EU, Mexico, and Canada. This was done in addition to the tariffs also being applied to goods imported from China. The image below provides more information on what these tariffs mean for Wisconsin business . With a trade war looming at the Federal level, I wanted to share some information with you in terms of how these tariffs will affect numerous industries across the state.
Rep. Ohnstad Attends the 6th Annual Pride Parade
Every year, I am proud to participate in Kenosha's Pride Festival. Thinking back I would have never guessed the courts would finally allow for all people to be able to marry the one they love. While there is clearly still work to be done, I will continue advocating for LGBT individuals and families both in Kenosha and in Madison as your State Representative. With a more conservative Supreme Court in the making, we have to be vigilant in protecting everyone's rights.
