The health and safety of Wisconsinites is at risk!

On Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 9 AM, the Senate Budget Committee will vote on Bills 288 and 296.

SB 288 calls for the review, reduction, and elimination of all occupational licenses in WI. This includes healthcare professions like Respiratory Therapists, Physical Therapist, Physician Assistants, Dental Hygienists, Occupational Therapists and more! Patient safety and the quality of healthcare will be directly effected.

SB 296 calls for the Department of Safety and Professional Services to establish an electronic self-certification registry. Of particular concern is that the new "state certified" designation will not come from DSPS, but rather, from five unidentified non-governmental organizations and trade associations that are entirely unaccountable to the citizens of Wisconsin. 

It is important to TAKE ACTION NOW, and let Senators Kapenga (R), Harsdorf (R), Craig (R), Johnson (D), and Vinehout (D) that you want them to vote NO on Senate Bills 288 and 296.

Senator Kapenga – R (Delafield) Chair; introduced the bill
608-266-9174; 800-863-8883

Senator Harsdorf – R (River Falls) Vice-Chair

Senator Craig – R (Town of Vernon)

Senator Johnson - D (Milwaukee)

Senator Vinehout – D (Alma)
608-266-8546; 877-763-6636
