MADISON – Wisconsin State Representative Greta Neubauer (D-Racine) released the following statement on the final day of the 2019-2020 floor session in the Wisconsin State Assembly:
“Over the last thirteen months under Governor Tony Evers’ leadership, we have been able to move the needle on many issues important to Wisconsinites,” Neubauer said. “We’ve pushed for (and achieved) greater investments in education, transportation, in rural and low-income communities. In the Assembly, we passed ten bipartisan water quality bills for the Year of Clean Drinking Water. But as the Speaker gavels out session today, there is still much work left for us to do in the Legislature, work that can’t wait until 2021.
“Our constituents need us to accept the federal Medicaid expansion, so more people can access affordable health insurance coverage and see reduced private insurance premiums,” Neubauer continued. “We need to pass nonpartisan redistricting, so legislators are legally required to draw maps that reflect the people’s will and not their own. We need to act on climate change, and to strengthen tenant’s rights laws, and so much more.
“While session may be done in the Assembly, our work isn’t finished. I’m committed to continuing this work throughout the year and beyond.”
