Every day, there are families across Wisconsin dealing with the loss of someone to cancer. The Knodl family is no different. Dan lost his brother to leukemia when he was only 18 and lost his sister-in-law to breast cancer when she was just 32.
When a loved-one gets sick, families shouldn’t need to worry about losing health coverage or being unable to afford the insurance premium.
That’s why Dan Knodl voted to protect those with pre-existing conditions and passed legislation to help drive down health insurance premiums.
Dan’s Healthcare Record
Making sure students and teachers have the resources they need is critical to a successful education. That’s why Dan voted to increase funding for public schools in the last budget, putting more money directly into the classroom.
Dan also made it a priority to increase career training opportunities for students while they’re still in high school. Expanding access to Youth Apprenticeship programs gives students the chance to go to school and work part time with local employers, giving them valuable on the job training.
When it comes to higher education, Dan supported the UW tuition freeze which has been in place for almost six years. Keeping college affordable for Wisconsin students and families helps create a strong and qualified workforce across the state.
Cutting Government Waste and Reducing Taxes
You work hard for your money, and Dan fought to keep more of it in your own pocket. Dan helped cut government waste, balance the budget, and reduced the tax burden by more than $8 billion over the last few years.
Not so long ago, property taxes were rising out of control, making it harder for families, seniors, and those on fixed incomes to stay in their homes. That’s just not right, and Dan fought to reverse that trend.
Today, property taxes have been lowered and the state portion has been eliminated.
The economy is strong and opportunities for success continue to grow. Dan expanded job-training and apprenticeship opportunities for people to get the skills they need to find meaningful work and successful careers.
Welfare reforms are helping break the cycle of government dependence and getting people back into the workforce. Work requirements and training opportunities give people the incentive to get back on their feet and into a great job.
