In December 2019, the Republicans prefiled a bill for the 2020 legislative session to create a medical marijuana program in Wisconsin (Assembly Bill 750/SB683). AB 750 lead author was Rep. Mary Felzkowski (R-Irma) who is one of the three assembly districts in the 12th Senate District. Senator Tiffany did not co-sponsor this legislation (SB683) in the Senate. He Failed!
Senator Tiffany is announced he is running for Congress in the 7th District in a special election to replace Duffy.
