PORTAGE - Gov. Tony Evers signed Assembly Bill 77, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 23 on Tuesday. This bipartisan bill designates a portion of State Highway 33 as the Staff Sergeant Daniel D. Busch Memorial Highway between Portage and Baraboo.

Staff Sergeant Busch was a U.S. Army Ranger and a member of the U.S. Army Special Operations Delta Force. While serving as a Task Force Ranger in Mogadishu, Somalia, his helicopter was shot down by enemy fire. He survived the crash, but was killed shortly thereafter by enemy fire as he provided fire to protect his team members. He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star Medal and a Purple Heart.

tony-evers“Staff Sergeant Busch is a hero. He sacrificed everything for his team and country, and we are eternally grateful,” said Gov. Evers. “It is an honor to sign this bill into law so his legacy of selflessness and courage can live on in his community and our state. My condolences are with his family, friends, and community as they continue to mourn his loss and remember his life.”

Assembly Bill 77, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 23:

  • Designates roughly 9.5 miles of STH 33 outside Portage as the Staff Sergeant Daniel D. Busch Memorial Highway.

Gov. Evers Tuesday also vetoed Assembly Bill 249. Veto message for AB 249.
