Two Bills Passed by State Senate

I am proud that the Wisconsin State Senate passed two of my bills during this week’s floor session.

The first, SB 925, bans the sale of counterfeit and unsafe lighters in Wisconsin.

China and other countries have been exporting counterfeit and unsafe lighters into the United States for decades. These unregulated devices have led to thousands of injuries, billions of dollars in property damage, enormous healthcare costs and – unfortunately – death. With the rise of online shopping options, it is now easier and cheaper than ever to purchase knock-off lighters.

The second bill, SB 532, eliminates a restrictive section of administrative code that prohibits driver schools from being established within 1,500 feet of a Department of Transportation office that provides driving skills tests.

This legislation was requested by a constituent from Tomah.

It is always a rewarding experience when legislators from both sides of the political aisle can put their differences aside and do what is right to help the residents of our state.

I am honored that my colleagues recognized the value in my legislative proposals and put their support behind them. Hopefully, the governor follows suit and signs them into law so that we can make Wisconsin a better place to live for everyone.

I usually cringe when the state proposes new rules, but you keep coming up with good ones!
