Submit your nominee HERE

I’ve made it a priority to support veterans and their families. Wisconsin's First Congressional District Veteran of the Year Award will recognize an unsung hero in Southeast Wisconsin. I’m excited to begin this process and will continue working with our veteran community to ensure they receive the care they’ve earned.

Nominees must be a veteran of one of the five Armed Forces of the United States, including Reserve or National Guard, or United States Merchant Marines. All nominated veterans must live within Wisconsin’s First Congressional District and be able to supply a DD-214. Nominations are due by 5:00pm on Friday, October 11, 2019.

Nominations can be submitted online at my website HERE. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 608-752-4050.

Good News for Wisconsin Farmers

Image
It was announced this week that the United States and Japan finalized a preliminary trade agreement. This is good news for farmers. Lowering barriers to trade with one of our state’s top trading partners helps farmers and workers. In 2018 alone, Wisconsin exported more than $700 million in goods to Japan. We must continue working with our allies to create trade deals that allow American farmers and producers to sell their products freely, fairly, and reciprocally. 

Upcoming Event for Parents and High School Students: Financial Aid Information Session

Image

I’m holding a Financial Aid Information Session for parents and students on October 2, 2019 at Greendale High School. Representatives from the U.S. Department of Education, University of Wisconsin System, the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, Milwaukee Area Technical College, and Gateway Technical College will be in attendance.  As high school students consider their next step, this session can provide them with useful information to avoid falling into the student loan debt trap. Students and their parents must have the tools to navigate the cost of higher education. This information session is designed for prospective technical college and four-year college students to learn about federal financial aid programs available to them. 


Eliminating Stress for Parents Traveling with Children

Image

Today, I voted for the Traveling Parents Screening Consistency Act. When parents travel with young children, it is important they have easy access to baby formula and other drinks for infants and children—that means packing liquids in carry-on suitcases. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has made exceptions to the 3.4 ounces of liquid or less rule for parents traveling with children. However, this practice is not implemented nationwide. Flying with children is stressful enough, so it is important TSA implements its polices consistently across the board. This bill will ensure there is increased oversight of TSA’s guidelines to ensure parents and families have clear standards. Glad to see the Traveling Parents Screening Consistency Act pass the House. 

As always, please reach out to my office if you want to share an opinion or if you need help with a federal agency.

On Wisconsin,
