2. Legislation on the floor, in committee, and co-sponsored

3. Constituent meetings    

4. Upcoming


Red Tape Review   

As part of the Red Tape Review, the chapters of administrative code related to pharmacy practice were examined to ensure that they are consistent with contemporary pharmacy practice. This bill corrects any administrative rules that were outdated. In support of this initiative, I authored Assembly Bill 182 which:

  1. Repeals the display of pharmacy and pharmacist license requirements. 
  2. Modifies the definition long term care facility. 
  3. Repeals the requirement for an inpatient prescription order to include the address of the prescriber. 
  4. Repeals mandatory minimum equipment requirements. 

I am very happy and excited to author this bill. This is the first of many where I will fight to make sure that government gets out of the way of businesses so they can thrive and flourish in Wisconsin.

 

 Committees and Legislation 

Committee 22217 2.jpg

 

The past two months have been busy, but I have been fighting for, and supportive of legislation that will shrink the size and scope of government.

Bills I've voted for:

Assembly Bill 69 which allows patients access to investigational drugs

Senate Bill 3 which ends Project Labor Agreements

Senate Bill 7 which updates the renewal process for firearm licenses

Bills in Committee:

Assembly Bill 96 which allows for local paramedics and other individuals to maintain a supply and administer epinephrine auto-injectors

Co-Sponsorship

I am a co-sponsor of Assembly Joint Resolution 21 which is an application to call a Convention of States under Article V. This resolution makes a motion and moves us forward to returning the power and true authority of the Government to the people.  

I am also a co-sponsor of the Heal without Harm initiative.  These two bills end the supply and use of aborted fetal tissue for research, and give the mother the option to donate her child, whether through miscarriage, or stillbirth, to science.

"I firmly believe in this initiative. These two bills that I have supported, the Heal without Harm initiative, reveal that I support a limited government, and that I am a tireless supporter of Pro-Life causes."
