The Wisconsin State Assembly convened twice this week. As I mentioned last week, the main focus of Tuesday's session was the health and well-being of Wisconsinites.
In addition, we took a step to guarantee people with pre-existing medical conditions are covered by health insurance. This is a state-level protection that will protect Wisconsinites if changes happen to the federal law.
On Wednesday, the Assembly passed a number of bills that carry on and support Wisconsin's outdoors and sporting heritage. Much of the legislation passed this week had great bipartisan support and I hope this trend continues as we move through the session.
The Assembly will convene again next Tuesday, March 23rd, at 1:00 pm. Among the bills on the calendar will be AB149, that I helped author, which will ensure the people of Wisconsin have a voice in how billions of federal dollars from the recently passed American Rescue Plan Act are spent.
