Madison, WI — Senator Chris Kapenga (R – Delafield) released the following statement after Governor Evers vetoed two bills authored by Senator Kapenga.

Assembly Bill 808 requires a prosecutor to apply to the court if they are seeking to dismiss or amend charges of a violent felon illegally in possession of a firearm.

“We had an opportunity to enact a law that would have better protected people from criminals and prosecutors who don’t seem to think using a gun to commit a crime is a big deal.  By vetoing this legislation, our pro-criminal governor is clearly showing he favors repeat felons over the victims of these crimes. I hope people are paying attention to the consequences of this past election for governor and keep it in mind the next time they have to make that choice.”

Assembly Bill 26 protects and affirms the ability for patients to access Direct Primary Care, a model of care whereby patients get unlimited primary care services for a low, monthly subscription fee.

“I guess Governor Evers doesn’t think reducing cost and improving quality of health care is important to the people of Wisconsin.  The governor often talks about finding common ground and working together, but when it comes to working across the aisle, it is clear Governor Evers is more focused on politics than action. Talk is cheap and unfortunately, the governor decided to play politics once again.”
