six months in a row
August 24, 2018
I hope you're having a great week. Before the weekend starts off, I wanted to get you caught up on a few important things going on in both Wisconsin and in Washington.
Our Wisconsin Economy Continues To Grow
Great news for our growing Wisconsin economy: our unemployment rate has been below three percent for six. straight. months.
This is a big deal. Prior to last year, Wisconsin's unemployment rate had NEVER fallen below three percent. And now it has been below the mark for half a year.

Combatting The Opioid Crisis
The opioid crisis continues to devastate our families and our communities. Wisconsin has made major strides in combatting this crisis- including giving back more than 63,000 pounds of unused prescriptions in last May's Drug Take Back Day.
That was the third highest total in the nation- behind only California and Texas, and more than Minnesota, Michigan, and Iowa COMBINED.
Sadly, there is still much more work to do to defeat the scourge of opioids. I recently spoke with Charles Payne of Fox Business about the need to have an all-the-above approach to addressing the opioid crisis in America.
