Representative Lisa Subeck: Legislature Must Act to Address COVID-19

Legislative Remedies to Address COVID-19 Obstacles Long Overdue

MADISON – Today, Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) joined her Democratic colleagues calling on Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) to immediately convene the legislature to address the COVID-19 crisis. Democrats outlined specific proposals to provide relief to Wisconsin families and small businesses facing personal challenges and economic uncertainty.  Priorities outlined in a letter to Republican leadership align with the robust legislative package proposed by Governor Evers including health care, unemployment insurance, housing, education, elections, and more.

“The people of Wisconsin cannot wait any longer for the Legislature to act. I applaud the actions taken by Governor Evers, but his administration cannot solve this crisis alone,” said Representative Subeck. “COVID-19 knows no partisan bounds, and addressing its impact requires bipartisan solutions. Wisconsinites expect that their elected officials work together to provide support for those who have been negatively impacted. The legislature must act now to address the unprecedented impact and urgent needs of our state’s residents.”
