February 23, 2018

The Wisconsin Hospital Association is pleased to announce an outstanding legislative panel is confirmed for 2018 Advocacy Day. Confirmed panelists include legislators in both the state Senate and state Assembly: Sen. Patrick Testin (R-Stevens Point), Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton), Rep. Joe Sanfelippo (R-New Berlin) and Rep. Debra Kolste (D-Janesville).

Sen. Testin is the Majority Caucus vice-chair, and Sen. Erpenbach serves as a member of the Joint Committee on Finance. On the Assembly side, Rep. Sanfellipo serves as the chair of the Committee on Health, while Rep. Kolste is the ranking Democrat on the Committee on Health. As always, the panel will provide attendees in-depth insight into the issues facing health care in our state.

WHA strongly believes the afternoon’s legislative meetings are the most important part of the day and encourages attendees to register for Advocacy Day with a legislative visit. To prepare attendees for their meetings, WHA schedules all meetings, provides an issues briefing at Advocacy Day and an optional pre-event webinar on legislative visits.
