Rep. Robyn Vining Statement on Assembly Bill 1
MADISON – Today, the Assembly Committee on Health met for the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic for a public hearing and executive session on Assembly Bill 1. This bill was introduced by Assembly Speaker Vos. Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) issued the following statement in opposition of this legislation:
“This bill does not protect the people of Wisconsin from COVID-19. Wisconsinites have been waiting since April for action from the legislature. We must focus on responding to the health and economic concerns that this pandemic has brought to our state.
“I have been ready for months to pass legislation that will provide relief and protections to the people of Wisconsin in response to this virus. The Assembly Democratic Caucus and Governor Evers have introduced legislation that includes provisions supported by the Republican leadership in the legislature. The time is now to act on legislative proposals that will protect the lives and livelihoods of the people of Wisconsin.”
Rep. Vining represents the 14th Assembly District, which includes parts of Brookfield, Wauwatosa, and Milwaukee. For more information, visit Rep. Vining’s website here.
