Politician Info
F Nancy VanderMeer (R - WI)

Elected since 2014, this Tomah area representative has never co-sponsored legislation to reform marijuana laws.

In 2018 VanderMeer's campaign did not respond to multiple contact attempts from a USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin reporter which poised a marijuana question to her challenger.

During 2019, the Assembly Republicans prefiled a bill for the 2020 legislative session to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin (Assembly Bill 750) which VanderMeer did not sponsor.   She was absent from any 2021-22 legislation Republicans presented.
