2017-2019 State Budget Bill Signed- Domestic Partnership Impacts

On September 21, 2017, Governor Walker signed the 2017-2019 State Budget Bill. The budget bill contains a provision that eliminates the Chapter 40 domestic partnership program which will impact employees who are in a domestic partnership. At this time, the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) is reviewing the signed budget bill to identify implications for the Wisconsin Retirement System and ETF-administered benefit programs (including health insurance, life insurance, dental insurance and vision insurance). We will update this article when we receive more information on the impacts.

Once ETF provides a review of the budget bill, a targeted communication will be sent to employees who currently cover a domestic partner/domestic partner’s child(ren) to inform them of the impacts and any action they may have to take.

Do you have a favorite recipe that you wish was healthier?


Hello, my name is Emily Burger and I am a senior here at UW-Green Bay studying Nutrition. I am an intern for the UWGB Wellness Committee. I love to bake and cook and I am always looking for new recipes to try. Sometimes I come across recipes that sound really good, but may not be the healthiest. I then use that recipe as the base, but then make some substitutions or use less of certain ingredients. If you have recipes that you are interested in making or have recipes that you have used for years but would like to make them healthier, email the recipe and I will make some substitutions for you! I’ll also include why it’s healthier and explain some of the nutritional information behind it. A few simple changes can make a big difference!
