GREEN BAY – Representative Staush Gruszynski (D-Green Bay) joined Assembly Minority Leader Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) at the Brown County Courthouse on Monday to announce the Democrats’ “Forward, Together” fall legislative agenda.

staush-gruszynski“The people of Wisconsin sent us to Madison to address the pressing issues facing our state,” Gruszynski said. “­At a time when thousands of citizens can’t trust the safety of the water at their taps, when quality health care is out of reach for far too many of our neighbors, and when working families are struggling to get by, the legislature should be working overtime – not limiting our committee work and session days to a bare minimum. Thankfully, we still have time to take the bold actions that the people have asked for.”

Gruszynski and Hintz highlighted several policies that Democrats will continue to advocate for as the 2019-2020 legislative session continues including:

  • Passing strong water quality legislation to ensure that every Wisconsin resident, urban and rural, has access to clean, safe drinking water in their home.
  • Expanding Medicaid to provide thousands of citizens with quality health care while freeing up state resources for reinvestment in mental health, opioid treatment, and women’s health care.
  • Enhancing financial security for workers by enacting a living wage, expanding options for retirement savings, and ensuring that women receive equal pay for equal work.
