Dear Assembly Speaker Vos and Senate President Kapenga:
I write today requesting a joint session of the Wisconsin State Legislature for the purpose of delivering the 2022 State of the State Address. I respectfully request a joint session at 7:00 p.m. on one of the following dates:
February 15, 2022
February 22, 2022
Thank you in advance for your consideration of this request. Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office with any questions in the interim. I hope you and your families have a happy and safe holiday season, and I look forward to addressing the full legislature and the people of our state about continuing to move Wisconsin forward, together.

The Honorable Governor Evers
State of Wisconsin
115 East, State Capitol
Madison, WI 53702
Dear Governor Evers:
One of the biggest struggles across our state has been filling the 130,000 job openings, while we have 93,000 people who are currently not working. Employers continue to offer incentives, but government dependency has paralyzed many and pushed them away from self-dependency.
The pandemic presented us all with challenges; there is no doubt, but short-term assistance has quickly turned into long-term, unsustainable handouts.
In addition to labor shortages, there are supply shortages and soaring inflation rates, causing families to have to pay significantly more on items such as food and gasoline. Real people are struggling with these pocketbook issues. Wisconsin, with its proud work ethic, needs to get back on track.
We welcome your input on how you plan to best address the challenges facing the state of Wisconsin. In addition, citizens would like to get an updated balance of the federal dollars under your unilateral control.
It is our honor to invite you to deliver the State of the State address live and in-person to a joint session of the Wisconsin State Legislature on February 15, 2022, at 7 p.m. in the Assembly Chambers.
We look forward to hearing the address and thank you for considering this request.
ROBIN J. VOS
