Meet My Staff
session Kathy Divine and Adelina Yankova will be working alongside me.
They are well acquainted with the 95th District, have up-to-date
knowledge on my committees and legislative work and are passionate about
working with constituents.
Kathy and Adelina joined me to celebrate my inauguration earlier this month.
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month
Since a presidential proclamation in 2010, January is annually observed as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month. The proclamation was meant to bring attention to the prevalence of human trafficking as a modern form of slavery in hopes of eradicating the problem.
My Newly Introduced Legislation:
In observance of National Human Trafficking Awareness Day, I introduced LRB-0687 this Wednesday. This bill would protect child human trafficking victims from being charged with prostitution. Under current law, children who have been trafficked are not immune from criminal charges for being involved in illegal prostitution activities even when coerced. My proposal aims to illuminate the fact that child victims of sexual exploitation are extremely vulnerable, and should be treated as such instead of as criminals.
Task Force on Opioid Abuse
The Governor's Task Force on Opioid Abuse issued a set of recommendations to Gov. Scott Walker earlier this month, prompting Walker to call a special session to address the growing problem of opioid addiction in Wisconsin. The task force's proposal includes 11 bills, $12 million in program funding and 19 agency actions.
Response to Governor's State of the State Address
Gov. Scott Walker delivered his annual State of the State address on Tuesday afternoon, spending the majority of the time congratulating his own administration on what he sees as successful governing up until this point. Who it has been successful for, however, remained unclear, as the sentiment I repeatedly hear from my constituents is that Wisconsin's current government isn't working for them. His narrative is out of the touch with Wisconsin's middle class, many of whom have been hurt by the GOP's policies.
