Policy Areas

Economic Security

  Improving the economic security of Wisconsin families can lead to better outcomes for all Wisconsinites. Read here for topics related to unemployment benefits, subsidized child care, and Temporary Aid to Needy Families (TANF).

 

Education

 

Wisconsin has long relied on a well-educated workforce as a foundation of the state’s economy. Investment in early care and education, the state’s public K-12 educational system, and our colleges and universities pay dividends into the future.

 

Federal Budget and Taxes

 

 Decisions made by policymakers in Washington, D.C. affect which Wisconsinites pay taxes, and how much. Wisconsin often ranks among the states that receive the lowest federal aid per resident.

 

Health and Human Services

  Wisconsinites of all ages need access to quality, affordable health care.  

 

Jobs and the Economy

  Wisconsin is struggling to recover from the enormous job losses the state sustained during the recession. If Wisconsin wants workers to reach their potential, we should focus on investing in areas that really create jobs and build the economy — like education, public safety, transportation and health care.
