On March 17th 2020, Wisconsin's economy was very strong. Since then, the government shutdowns
and business closures have devastated our economy.
As your State Senator my #1 priority to get our economy back on it's feet, helping my constituents in their personal and business struggles.
The Republican majority in the legislature made a commitment in the 2019-2021 budget to prioritize education funding. We invested the most actual dollars ever in K-12 education.Education funding remains a priority for me. My wife and I both graduated from technical colleges in Wisconsin. Our children are UW-Madison attendees. And we all graduated from Wisconsin public high schools! Additionally, providing our business community with an educated workforce is vital to Wisconsin's economic success.
I have been a consistent advocate for a sustainable solution to funding Wisconsin's infrastructure and am proud to have delivered on this campaign promise! The 2019-2021 Budget provided substantial increases for local roads, highways, and most importantly fully funded the Highway 23 expansion! We accomplished this with the lowest bonding rate in 20 years and a sustainable, fee-based funding mechanism that will support our infrastructure needs for generations to come!
As your Senator, I’ll work to allow you to keep more of your hard earned money!Thanks to courageous leadership from Wisconsin's conservative majority, our state is heading in the right direction. We've fought fiercely to lower both property and income taxes. Our tax cuts saved you more than $13 billion over the past 8 years! I’ll work to balance our state budget just like you balance your family's budget and ensure your money is NEVER wasted! During the 2019-20 session, Senator Feyen authored Opportunity Zones legislation that helps to encourage investors to keep their dollars in the state by investing in one of Wisconsin’s 120 Opportunity Zones.
Agriculture in Wisconsin provides $88.3 billion to the state’s economy annually and provides 413,500 jobs, or 11% of the state’s total employment.As your State Senator I'm working hard to help provide a business climate in Wisconsin that helps our agricultural producers
and suppliers flourish.
I will continue to partner with our farmers to find ways to reduce their regulatory burden and improve their profitability so we can retain our heritage as the dairy state!
Our correctional officers are vital for the safety of our communities and rehabilitation of our inmates. I am proud to be their ally in Madison!
During my first 4 year term I successfully advocated for a substantial pay raise for correctional officers, an increase to the starting wage to boost recruitment and drive down vacancy rates and forced overtime, and created a length of service lump sum bonus payment.
I believe life is a precious gift that should be protected. I am 100% pro-life and support the efforts of pro-life groups in Wisconsin and across the nation.
The most popular sign I see when I drive through my district is "Help Wanted"!As a technical college graduate, I know the power of the trades to provide a living wage for a family and fuel Wisconsin's economy! I am committed to investing in worker training programs and increasing apprenticeship participation. Wisconsin must do everything in its power to attract and retain workers. I championed a comprehensive workforce marketing initiative and will continue to push for worker retention and attraction incentives.
We, as Americans, have the right to keep and bear arms. I stand by your right and will fight to keep unconstitutional, liberal, anti-gun policy proposals from seeing the light of day in Madison. I promise to fight any attack on your Second Amendment rights.Additionally, Wisconsin has a unique sporting heritage and family tradition of hunting across the state. I support Wisconsin sportsmen and will work to help pass this legacy down to the next generation.
Our small businesses are the backbone of Wisconsin’s economy. I see too many businesses that are overburdened with job-killing regulations. Wisconsin has over 12,000 pages of administrative codes, including some that are over 100 years old, that are costly to comply with and act as a deterrent to business growth.Government shouldn't create jobs at the expense of taxpayers. I've worked carefully to ensure we're not further bloating the state bureaucracy in Madison to the detriment of the true job creators in the private sector.
