uwgb-womenBi-partisan team of local legislators, led by Dave Hansen, line up to grant much deserved honor to Horizon League Championship Phoenix.


GREEN BAY - State Senator Dave Hansen (D-Green Bay) announced today that the Legislature passed a resolution honoring the accomplishments of the UWGB Women’s basketball team this week. Senate Joint Resolution 29, introduced by Hansen and sponsored by area representatives Eric Genrich and Andre Jacque and area senators Rob Cowles and Frank Lasee, was adopted by both the State Senate and the State Assembly on Tuesday.

dave-hansen“This is a well-deserved honor for great group of young athletes who excelled both on and off the court,” said Hansen. “I am pleased that my colleagues in the Legislature recognized their accomplishments in this way and I am so proud of our team and our university.”

By defeating Detroit Mercy 64-52 in the championship game of the Horizon League Championship the Phoenix captured their 15th tournament championship in the last 20 seasons and another trip to the NCAA tournament.

“Enough cannot be said about the UWGB women’s program. They are one of the best programs in the country year in and year out and a great source of pride for our university, our community and our state,” said Hansen who is a UWGB graduate.

UW-Green Bay is one of only three Division I programs that has had a winning record every year since 1981 and by securing their 40th-consecutive winning season this year they now trail only Tennessee (43) for the longest active streak in the nation.

“This is a very exceptional group of young athletes who are well-coached and who have shown us yet again the kind of success that comes from hard work, discipline and team effort. There is an expectation of greatness at the start of every season and they lived up to that and more.”

elderly-people-on-computerRepublicans in Washington voted to allow personal data to be tracked, stored and sold by internet service providers. Shilling proposal would block them from collecting personal information unless they obtain written consent. Bill now heads to Assembly.


MADISON, WI – Democrats in the State Senate were successful in restoring internet privacy rights in a vote on the Senate floor today. The proposal, introduced by Sen. Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) and the full Senate Democratic caucus, will protect consumers from having personal data tracked, stored and sold by internet service providers. Several states have taken quick action to restore internet privacy rights after Republicans in Congress voted to repeal consumer privacy protections.

jennifer-shilling“These new safeguards will ensure that consumers, not out-of-state corporations, have the final say in how their personal information and internet data is shared,” said Sen. Shilling. “I’m glad that Democrats were able to protect Wisconsin families and prevent out-of-state corporations from profiting off big data collection and invasive internet surveillance. Thanks to our quick action in the Senate, children, families and seniors in Wisconsin will have the opportunity to protect their personal information.”

Senate Amendment 13 to Senate Bill 49 prohibits internet service providers from collecting the personal information of internet users unless they obtain express written consent from the customer. The proposal forbids internet providers and telecommunication companies from denying service to someone that refuses to approve the collection of their personal data. The bill must still pass the Assembly and be signed by the Governor before becoming law.

liberty-bellSome in our Legislature want an Article 5 Constitutional Convention for a "Balanced Budget" amendment, but once opened, those at the convention would not be bound to that proposal and the liberties and freedoms we hold dear, even our system of government, could be changed.
