Legislative Priorities

Fighting Crime and Protecting Our Communities
Since coming to Congress, I have made fighting crime in our communities and the state of Wisconsin a top priority.
Looking Out for Wisconsin Families
We see the many contributions that Wisconsin's hard-working families make every day, and the challenges they face finding decent-paying jobs, affording health care, and making ends meet as they build their lives.
Preparing Our Children for the Future
Our children are tomorrow's teachers, doctors, scientists, parents and even Presidents. Ensuring children receive the help they need to succeed has long been among my top priorities.
Protecting Consumers
As the Chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, I take an active role in seeing that a competitive marketplace ensures the lowest possible prices for high quality and innovative goods and services for Wisconsinites and all Americans.
Standing Up for Wisconsin Farmers
Wisconsin is now and will always be America's Dairyland. We have efficient, hard-working farmers, plentiful water and feed supplies, great land, an entrepreneurial spirit, and an unyielding pride in our dairy heritage which gives us the competitive edge for success.
