Contact: Representative Robyn Vining

MADISON – Today, Governor Tony Evers delivered his second State of the State address, outlining priorities for the year. State Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) issued the following statement in response:

“I appreciate the commitment Governor Evers has to making our state the best it can be for its residents. We have worked hard the past year, and I am excited for the hard work to continue in 2020.

“Last year, I authored the Fair Maps bill to create a nonpartisan redistricting process for Wisconsin. I am thankful that Governor Evers supports the bipartisan Fair Maps efforts and is continuing our work in 2020 to promote good government and a fair democracy. After all, voters should get to choose their politicians, politicians should not get to choose their voters.

“Public health and safety is paramount to my work as a legislator, especially when it comes to our kids. Youth vaping has increased dramatically in the past few years, and I am grateful to work alongside Governor Evers and state agencies with legislation to protect kids from the health risks of vaping and protect consumers from improper business practices.

“Small business is the backbone of our state. Governor Evers and I have been working on a small business portal, and we will keep working to go big for small business.

“I look forward to continuing my work with Governor Evers and my colleagues in the legislature on the issues that Wisconsinites care about. Forward together.”
