Kitchens reflects on 2019

Rep. Joel Kitchens of Sturgeon Bay says it was a different year because of the split government, but he is proud of what the Legislature was able to accomplish. Recently, Kitchens helped make it easier for municipalities to get what they are owed from lodging rental companies like Airbnb and Vrbo. His work on the Blue Ribbon Commission on School Funding was able to get more money to area districts while his birth control bill gained traction among his party members in the Assembly. Kitchens says there are things he would like to see happen in 2020 for the benefit of the environment.

Despite some of the battles with Democratic Governor Tony Evers, Kitchens believes some good came out of a year with a split government, saying both sides realized they needed each other to get anything done. The Wisconsin Legislature is back to work in Madison on January 14th.
