DRW Commends Signing of SB 19

Disability Rights Wisconsin commends the signing of SB 19 which removes offensive languages about Wisconsinites with intellectual disabilities from administrative rules. DRW Executive Director Lea Kitz attended the bill signing; SB 19 moved forward with unanimous support and is the very first bill signed by Governor Evers. DRW thanks Representative Jagler and Senator Fitzgerald for their leadership advancing this policy change, and thanks Governor Evers for signing SB 19 into law. We look forward to future opportunities to work with policy makers to advance Wisconsin’s commitment to equity and inclusion for Wisconsinites of all abilities.
