By - Apr 13th, 2020 12:00 pm

[Madison, WI]  Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald released the following statement regarding COVID-19 legislation:

“We crafted this bill taking into consideration the governor’s proposals, reacting to legislation passed by Congress, and receiving input from both parties in the Legislature. This bill extends a lifeline to the recently unemployed and provides the Joint Finance Committee flexibility to respond to future challenges caused by COVID-19. There is no such thing as a perfect piece of legislation, but action is desperately needed right now. We plan to move forward with a vote in the Senate on Wednesday.”

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.
