assembly-wi-robin-vosMADISON - Yesterday, the Wisconsin State Assembly adjourned for the calendar period after a day of voting on over 90 bills on the final scheduled floor session. Over the course of the last 14 months, Representative Snodgrass has joined her Democratic colleagues in working tirelessly to make Wisconsin a place where residents have the freedom, economic security, and opportunity to thrive. Democrats introduced hundreds of bills that had the potential to make meaningful improvements to people across the state.

Representative Snodgrass championed bipartisan legislation whenever possible. She successfully reached across the aisle to garner support and pass real solutions - increasing accessibility in the adoption process (SB 381), improving safety for first responders in dangerous situations (SB 829), and strengthening the election process so Wisconsinites can cast their vote with further ease and confidence. As a ranking member on the Assembly Committee on Campaigns & Elections, Representative Snodgrass’ bipartisan work with Republican Chair Scott Krug drew statewide and national attention.

Representative Snodgrass released the following statement reflecting on the legislative session:

lee-snodgrass“As we adjourn for this calendar period, I am proud of the bipartisan accomplishments that we managed to get through but disappointed at the many missed opportunities to make Wisconsin a place where more individuals can safely live, work, and thrive. I am grateful to the countless Wisconsinites who have worked tirelessly to champion legislation for the betterment of our communities - from extending postpartum care for Medicaid recipients, clean drinking and groundwater, LGBTQ+ equality, voter access, reproductive freedom, and more. We have so much work to do and I am confident that with maps that reflect the will of the people, we will be successful in advancing more legislation that improves the health and well-being of every person in Wisconsin regardless of where they live, who they love, or where they’re from.”
