Madison- State Representative Tyler Vorpagel (R-Plymouth) issued the following regarding the release of Assembly Republicans Homelessness Legislation Package.
“Today with my Assembly Republican colleagues, I introduced a package of bills to continue our efforts to combat homelessness. Last session my colleagues and I passed several bills and created the Interagency Council on Homelessness. The bills we presented in this package were recommended from their action plan.
“The legislation as part of the Hand for the Homeless Package, doubles the investment to address homelessness statewide, while ensuring targeted dollars spend our money wisely. By investing $3.75 million annually, this money will go directly into programs identified that will address homelessness in Wisconsin. Last session’s Homelessness package received bipartisan support and we hope these bills will be met with that same bipartisan support.”
