Let’s review some of the important bills that the Governor recently vetoed. These are good bills that are being blocked by a partisan Governor who only listens to Madison's elites.
AB-191: Repealing of the personal property tax for businesses
I’ve heard from business owners since before I was even in the Legislature about how onerous this tax is on small businesses. Often, it causes more paperwork than the tax is even worth. Evers vetoed doing away with this outdated tax, despite wide support, including Republicans and Democrats alike.
AB-336: Ending enhanced unemployment benefits
Business owners are eager to get people back to work, but the enhanced UI benefit to the unemployed collecting benefits is one of the roadblocks to hiring. This bill would have suspend the enhanced federal benefits, encouraging people to return to the workforce.
AB-173: Stopping “Zuckerbucks” private money from influencing local elections
This bill would have prohibited private funds from going directly to hand-picked communities to disproportionately impact voting. It’s a fact that millions of dollars in private funds were funneled to targeted municipalities in Wisconsion and across the nation during the last election. This bill could have been a step forward to restore trust in the election process, but we have a Governor who vetoed the bill and is likely to veto more of the 12 election integrity bills passed by the legislature.
AB-383: Allowing students who transferred schools during the pandemic shutdown to participate in sports
This bill would have prevented students from being punished for making the decision to best help them learn during the pandemic by keeping them eligible for sports. This temporary rule change would allow them to remain eligible to participate in sports this year as outlined by the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association.
