MADISON, Wis.— Today Opportunity Wisconsin released the following statement as the Biden-Harris administration marks 100 days in office.

Meghan Roh, Opportunity Wisconsin program director:
“Over the last 100 days, we’ve seen bold leadership, decisive action, and a clear commitment from the Biden-Harris administration on behalf of Wisconsin’s workers and families. Whether it’s shots in arms, money in pockets, small businesses reopening, students returning to the classroom, or simply seniors hugging their grandchildren again—Wisconsin residents are seeing real, tangible results after years of stalled progress and broken promises. Now it’s time to build on this progress and create an economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few.

“We urge our elected officials to continue this momentum by supporting policies that invest in Wisconsin’s future as we recover from the pandemic. The time to act is now. We’re calling on Senator Ron Johnson and Wisconsin’s Republican congressional representatives—all of whom voted against the American Rescue Plan—to stop standing in the way of Wisconsin’s recovery.”
