State Senator Luther Olsen–your senator and mine–distributed his Weekly Update this week and like many of the updates and newsletters sent from Madison it was not particularly informative. The three main items included something on a group from Ripon’s Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church and their support for legislation that would decriminalize young victims of sexual trafficking (about time), something on this being tax season, and something on woodpeckers being a sign that you may have emerald ash borers. That is it.
Where is information about the pending battles in the state legislature between the GOP-controlled state legislature and the Dems who now hold the state’s top elected positions. What about Medicaid expansion, voting rights, redistricting, corporate farming, groundwater pollution, Foxconn, and health insurance?
Note that there is a place on the Update for you to subscribe to them.
