Tracking Progress of the WI Stronger Workforce Legislative Initiative

The purpose of this page is to track the progress of the Stronger Workforce Legislative Initiative in Wisconsin, including any gubernatorial vetoes of bills that have been approved by the state legislature.

This package of bills will not only help Wisconsin’s economy rebound from the impacts of the pandemic, it will also launch the Badger State into a prosperous future where families and businesses thrive.

These reforms focus on eliminating barriers to work, rooting out fraud in abuse in publicly funded programs, and helping people reenter the workforce:
