Unfortunately Republican Terry Katsma from Oostburg has not sponsored any marijuana reform legislation since being elected to the State Assembly in 2014 and has not been very public about the issue of marijuana reform.
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 Assembly Rep. Katsma did not sponsor.
