Assembly Floor Session

On Thursday, the Assembly was in floor session to take up a series of bills.  Listed below is a link to what happened during the session including votes taken.  If a roll call vote was called, you will be able to view the vote of each representative.  Otherwise, the Assembly adopted the bill/measure by voice vote. 

Veteran of the Year

I would like to honor Albert Kroll of Marshfield for his service and dedication to the United States and Marshfield community.  Mr. Kroll served in the United States Air Force for over 27 years, including deployments during Operation Desert Storm and Iraqi Enduring Freedom.  When Mr. Kroll was not serving our country, he served the Marshfield community for over 30 years as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) at Marshfield Clinic.  On Veteran's Day, the Marshfield Veterans Council awarded Mr. Kroll the honor of Veteran of the Year at their annual gathering.  As I was unable to attend the Veterans Day gathering, I will present a citation on behalf of the State of Wisconsin honoring him for his service at a later time.
