As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused thousands of infections and has cost hundreds of thousands of jobs in Wisconsin. While other members of the business community band together to help restart our economy and support those in need, Wisconsin trial lawyers are looking to profit off of others’ tragedy.
Unfortunately, many trial lawyers are already spending significant amounts on advertising to recruit COVID-19 plaintiffs to sue Wisconsin businesses, schools and homeowners. The legislature needs to act now to protect businesses – many already financially stretched to the brink – from potentially bankruptcy-causing litigation.
Thankfully, Sen. Chris Kapenga, and Reps. Mark Born and Dan Knodl have introduced legislation that would protect businesses, non-profits, schools and homeowners from these frivolous lawsuits. But their colleagues need to hear from you!
Lawmakers have until Sept. 25 to sign onto this legislation as a co-sponsor. Click the button below to contact your legislators and the governor today.

There's a lot at stake with this fall's general election, with Wisconsin expected to be again be a critical battleground state in the race for US President, control of the US Senate in the balance, and strong efforts by both parties to increase their representation in the Wisconsin Legislature.
Register In this edition of Eggs & Issues, we'll get savvy insights from two valuable sources: 
 • Bill McCoshen, Managing Partner of Capitol Consultants in Madison, will assess Wisconsin Legislative contests to provide us with clues to watch for as the campaign unfolds. One of the state's best known political experts, Bill is a former Secretary of Commerce, and served as Chief of Staff and campaign manager for former Governor Tommy Thompson.
 • John Kirchner, Executive Director of Congressional and Public Affairs for the US Chamber of Commerce, will fill us in on the national picture, including key races around the country to watch in the fight for control of the US Senate, key factors in the Presidential race, the Chamber's efforts to foster bipartisanship, and the status of federal relief legislation.
The Eggs & Issues Series is a Chamber Business Advocacy event. Investors include: Partner level - Xcel Energy; Advocate level - Miron Construction; Supporter level - Banbury Place/Cigan Properties, Eau Claire Energy Cooperative and HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Josephs' hospitals.
