Welcome to my e-update May 8, 2017

Spring Survey 

Within the next couple weeks you will be receiving my Spring Survey in the mail.  You can either go to my website and fill it out, or fill out the survey at home and send it back in the mail.  

By completing the survey, you help keep me informed on what issues are important to you, and what I should be doing in Madison.  This is one of the most important ways to keep me informed about you, the voter, and what is important to you.

Whether by hand or online, I appreciate you taking the time to express your opinions and views of what is important to you with me.



Current Legislation  

My first bill, AB 182 and SB 126, have both had their public hearing, and have made it through executive session.  The next step is to vote on these bills on the floor of the Assembly and Senate.

Assembly Bill 182 and Senate Bill 126 are scheduled for a floor date on May 10.

Assembly Bill 260 gives those chiropractors who want to take additional training the opportunity to perform sports physicals on student athletes in Wisconsin, perform chiropractic acupuncture and dry needling, and delegate appropriate services to other licensed health care professionals. 

.

"My intention in authoring this bill is to give chiropractors additional clinical tools to better care for their patients and provide them with effective alternatives including treatment of addictive opioids relevant to today’s current challenges.  We all know the threat that invasive treatments and systemic care such as opioids can present to patients in chronic pain.  Chiropractic care has proven to be an effective treatment for back pain and an effective alternative to opioids and long term prescription drug use."

                                    Upcoming
With the budget listening sessions over, it is now time for the Assembly to get to work and submit budget motions.  

These Budget motions will either request to remove an item from the Governor's proposal, or add something to his proposal.  Thanks to your input we have gathered information to make sure that we fight for what is important to you.  

If there are any other concerns that you have about the budget proposal process that you would like the Assembly to change, please contact my office.  

My job in Madison is to represent you.  

 

Feel free to read the budget and offer any comments to our office.
