[Madison, WI] — This week, Senator Chris Kapenga delivered the weekly Republican radio
Hey Wisconsin, Senator Chris Kapenga from Delafield here.
Over the past few weeks it’s been great to see some schools reopening and families returning to their routines. I think it’s healthy for those who are feeling some sense of normalcy, but unfortunately that’s not the case for everyone. Some parents are concerned with their kids not being able to be educated in person. Also, schools, businesses and other organizations have the constant worry about lawsuits related to COVID-19.
So this week, legislative Republicans put out two bills aimed at protecting schools and
businesses as well as giving parents the options they need to get by if their child’s school is
closed. The first bill provides protection from frivolous lawsuits to schools and businesses who are following recommended precautions and the second bill gives parents more flexibility to use the open enrollment and choice programs should their school choose not to educate the students in person.
Our goal is to restore confidence and hope in our communities that COVID-19 will not get the best of us.
Senator Kapenga represents the 33 rd Senate District, which covers most of central Waukesha County and Lake Country.
