Home is where the heart is, and as a husband and father of three, Rob knows that firsthand. To help Wisconsin families, Rob introduced a bill to encourage the development and restoration of low-income housing statewide, and co-authored another allowing counties to work together to combat child abuse and neglect. Families should have a roof over their heads and a solid foundation to build on.
Protecting Your Hard-Earned Dollars
You work hard for your money, and Rob has been hard at work protecting your dollars from waste, fraud, and abuse. That’s why Rob authored a bill to make sure only living people who are eligible for public benefits are receiving them, and another to criminalize “credit card skimming.” By supporting these common sense reforms, Rob will continue to be a steward of your tax dollars.
Since day one, it has been Rob's top priority to fight for the values of the Chippewa Valley region. He's listened to and delivered results for his constituents who value strong schools, affordable healthcare, and investment in our communities. Here are several issues that Rob has made a priority to continue to work on:
Encouraging Affordable Healthcare
Rob agrees Wisconsin needs to protect those with pre-existing conditions and make sure they have access to affordable healthcare. Letting small businesses pool resources to drive down costs will help make plans more affordable, so everyone can find a doctor that fits the needs of their family. Everyone deserves access to high-quality, affordable health care.
Rob supported a record increase of $636 million in education funding, so that our teachers and students have the tools they need to succeed in the classroom. To help our struggling rural schools, he voted to increase sparsity aid and target more money to frugal, low spending schools. Rob also voted to keep college affordable for hard-working Wisconsin families by continuing the tuition freeze at University of Wisconsin schools for another two years.
Strengthening the Economy
Growing the economy is important to Rob. That’s why he authored a bill to protect large music festivals like Country Fest, Eaux Claires, and Rock Fest. By supporting this $40 million industry, Rob will continue to be a champion of the Chippewa Valley economy.
