Our boy Republican Glenn Grothman has been busy so far this year in the 116th Congress (2019-2020).

He has sponsored or co-sponsored a slew of bills in the House of Representatives. The bills he, his staff, or the various special interest groups that often provide the language for legislation, have promoted tend to reflect Grothman’s ultra conservative, right wing political agenda.

For example, in addition to the bill that would allow for crowdfunding of Donald Trump’s wall, Grothman’s name is on legislation that would deny federal funding to sanctuary cities or counties that are in violation of federal immigration laws; prohibit abortions in cases where there is a fetal heartbeat; place a moratorium on Federal funding to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.; provide that human life shall be deemed to begin with fertilization; amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to impose Federal taxes on bonds used to provide facilities owned by abortion providers.

Unless otherwise noted, Rep. Grothman is a co-sponsor of a particular bill
