Gov. Evers Statement on COVID-19 Legislation Advanced by Senate

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today released the below statement regarding Assembly Bill (AB) 1 as amended and advanced by the Wisconsin State Senate.

“I’ve been grateful to work together with Republican Majority Leader LeMahieu to find common ground and pass a bill on COVID-19 that reflects a good faith effort in compromise and bipartisanship.

Although it's not the COVID compromise we originally proposed, AB 1 as amended by the Senate is a good start to support our state’s response to this pandemic. The Assembly should pass AB 1 as it was amended today and send it to my desk for my signature without delay.”
