NEENAH — Gov. Tony Evers today signed Senate Bill 1, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 3, during a public ceremony at the Neenah City Council Chambers. Act 3 designates the interchange of I-41, U.S. Highway 6 10, and State Highway 441 in Winnebago County as the “Michael G. Ellis Memorial Interchange” to honor former State Senator Michael Ellis, who served in the Wisconsin State Legislature for over four decades.

“Mike was a fierce advocate for his constituents during his 44 years in the legislature and this commemoration honors his career of service to the state of Wisconsin,” said Gov. Evers. “It also calls Democrats and Republicans alike to remember that what unites us is our promise of service and to do what’s best for the people of our state. That’s the kind of public servant Mike was, and what we must all aspire to be.”

Gov. Evers today also signed Senate Bill 3, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 4. Act 4 makes changes to the denial, suspension, and revocation procedures of certain licenses related to motor vehicle dealers.
