19th Senate District Update: December 1, 2023


I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! This week, the Senate Mental Health Committee held a public hearing to discuss public safety and one bill I authored expanding access to out-of-state mental health providers.

My staff and I were also happy to meet with:

  • Rx Destroyer Tour
  • Department of Health Services
  • Sanofi
  • WI Personal Services Association
  • All Copays Count Coalition
  • Appleton International Airport
  • N.E.W. Mental Health Connection
  • Medical College of Wisconsin
  • WI Women’s Council

Next week, the Senate Committee on Universities and Revenue will hear two bills I authored on campus free speech. The Senate Committee on Health will also be meeting to:

  • Vote on important items.
  • Hold a hearing on several important bills.
  • Find some solutions for the long term care workforce crisis.

I’d also like to wish in advance of next week a Happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate!
