Evers on Oshkosh West Shooting PDF Print E-mail

sandy-hook-motherGovernor says we can’t just accept that violence in our schools is a foregone conclusion, and we have to get to work to keep our kids and communities safe.


MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers issued the following statement Monday on the shooting at Oshkosh West High School:

tony-evers-kathy“What happened in Oshkosh today hits especially close to home for Kathy and I—two of our kids graduated from Oshkosh West when our family lived in Oshkosh, and our hearts go out to all of the folks at Oshkosh West and the Oshkosh community as they grapple with today’s events.

It’s impossible to ignore the fact that in addition to today’s officer-involved shooting at Oshkosh West, the Sparta School District is closed due to security threats, and that this happened just a day after we had another school shooting at Waukesha South. I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again today—no kid should be afraid to go to school or be in the classroom, and no parent should be afraid to send their kid to school, either. The last two days tells us that we can’t keep pretending that this only happens in other communities or in other states—it’s happening here, too. We can’t just accept that violence in our schools is a foregone conclusion, and we have to get to work to do everything we can to keep our kids and our communities safe.”

tony-evers-shilling-telehealthbillsign-10.25.19Will improve health outcomes and coverage for rural communities, while it reduces the number of costly emergency room visits and lowers insurance costs for everyone in our state.


RICHLAND CENTER, WI – Bipartisan legislation to expand access to telehealth services for Medicaid recipients was signed into law by Governor Tony Evers at a special ceremony at the Richland Center Hospital.

jennifer-shillingAs a supporter of the legislation, Senator Shilling joined Governor Evers for the bill signing and released the following statement after the ceremony:

“When patients have access to health care services like telehealth technologies, it reduces the number of costly emergency room visits and lowers insurance costs for everyone in our state. This bill is critical for improving better health outcomes and expanding coverage for rural communities that have limited access to specialty care. It is also reassuring that western Wisconsin was well represented in the development of this legislation through the advocacy of local health leaders. I was proud to support this bipartisan bill and thank Governor Evers for promptly signing this into law.”

Governor Signs Medical Compact Act at Prescott High School Student Assembly PDF Print E-mail
News
Written by GOV Press Wisconsin   
Friday, 22 November 2019 15:19

prescott-wi-hsPRESCOTT - Gov. Tony Evers on Friday signed Senate Bill 74, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 49, a bipartisan bill that repeals 2015 Act 116 and related statutes to ensure Wisconsin's continued participation in the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact.

In September, Mr. Jeff Ryan, a social studies and civics teacher who has taught at Prescott High School for the last 31 years, sent a letter inviting Gov. Evers to visit his classroom. Mr. Ryan has invited every Wisconsin Governor since 1990 to Prescott, and wrote to Gov. Evers saying he hoped the “30-year streak of no visits to our school will end with you.” Gov. Evers signed 2019 Wisconsin Act 49, together with Mr. Ryan and Prescott High School students, at a school assembly after visiting Mr. Ryan's class.

tony-evers“I'm especially excited to be here today, not just to be able to visit Prescott for Mr. Ryan, but because I get to show students firsthand what lawmaking and civics look like, and how important they are to our state,” said Gov. Evers. “It's easy to read the local newspapers and watch the news and to think that all elected officials do is fight and disagree—what I call 'huffing and puffing'—but today we get to show students that when folks set aside politics and put people first, there's a lot of things we can do and work together on to make our state a better place.”

Senate Bill 74, now 2019 Wisconsin Act 49:

  • Repeals 2015 Act 116 which set a sunset date of Wisconsin's participation in the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact of Dec. 16, 2019; and
  • Repeals related statutes that were impacted by the enactment of Act 116.

The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact is an agreement with over 25 states and provides a voluntary expedited pathway to licensure in multiple states for qualified physicians. By participating in the Compact, licensed physicians can qualify to practice across state lines if they are board-certified, in good standing in their home state, and have no malpractice claims.
