On Friday I joined Governor Tony Evers, law enforcement, and members of the community during the bill signing of Assembly Bill 633 (now Act 105). This legislation is intended to help alleviate the burden on law enforcement transporting emergency detentions to Winnebago.

The law allows for departments to enter into contracts to have emergency detentions transported by third party instead of having to take officers out of the community to complete the transport.

I'd like to extend many thanks to my constituent, Dave Glomp, and Dane County Sheriff David Mahoney for all of their assistance getting this much needed bill through the legislative process.

Last Week in Review

Last week, Gov. Evers vetoed the GOP tax plan which further cuts taxes for manufacturers. Gov. Evers and legislative Democrats have told Republican leadership that they are open to working together to find a compromise to use the budget surplus funds to increase education funding and fund a tax cut. However, GOP leaders once again are prioritizing political games over funding for our students. Senate Majority Leader, Scott Fitzgerald (R- Juneau), stated that "there is no time for compromise" and continues to refuse to prioritize essential school funding. The Republicans’ misplaced priorities are depriving Wisconsin students the opportunity of a quality education.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, a Marquette Law School poll found the majority of Wisconsinites are in favor of an increase in state public school spending. This further strengthens Democrats' and Gov. Evers' case for increasing K-12 funding with the funds from the budget surplus.

20200225_fish2.jpgNew Wisconsin Fishing Regulations

Wisconsin is a great state to fish! Kids 15 and under fish free every day. So do anglers born before 1927 and active duty military on furlough or leave who are Wisconsin residents. For everybody else, a variety of license options can get you out on the water quickly, easily and at a bargain price.

Additionally, updated state, regional, and local fishing regulations will go into effect on April 1st to provide good fishing opportunities for the public and help fulfill Department of Natural Resources management goals.

Wisconsin Joins Multistate Investigation of JUUL Labs

Attorney General Josh Kaul announced last week that Wisconsin has joined a bipartisan, multi-state investigation of JUUL Labs. The 39-state multi-state coalition is investigating JUUL’s marketing and sales practices, including targeting of youth, claims regarding nicotine content, and statements regarding risks, safety and effectiveness as a smoking cessation device.

While traditional cigarette use has plummeted among youth, vaping is skyrocketing. Between 2014 and 2018, the Youth Tobacco Survey found that the share of Wisconsin high schoolers smoking cigarettes had dropped from 10.7 to 4.7 percent. During that same time, the share of Wisconsin high schoolers vaping e-cigarettes increased from 7.9 to 20.1 percent (or one out of every five students).

With e-cigarette usage increasing dramatically among young people in Wisconsin and nationally, and we must act to reduce it. JUUL has been the driving force behind this increase, and this bipartisan group of AGs investigating JUUL’s sales and marketing practices is a good first step.
