MADISON – State Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement on Assembly Bill (AB) 1 after today’s vote in the Assembly Committee on Health.

“We must provide stability and protection for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions should Republican efforts to overturn the Affordable Care Act be successful. AB 1 does not go nearly far enough. Absent other key provisions of the Affordable Care Act, AB 1 could leave many Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions without access to the care they need. It is my hope that this is merely a first step.

“I strongly support Governor Evers’ efforts to work in a bipartisan fashion to strengthen this bill. I hope that Speaker Vos and Majority Leader Fitzgerald will put politics aside to make AB 1 better and protect Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.”
