On June 20, Assembly Speaker Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester) and Assembly Minority Leader Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) held news conference prior to the Assembly floor session where they took votes on extending the Lincoln Hills deadline. Rep. Michael Schraa (R-Oshkosh) spoke about the trailer bill and the promise to close Lincoln Hills as of July 1, 2021. "I went through the timeline from day one with the Governor's office and everything in the timeline that we've laid out with the extra six month extension is doable." Rep. Hintz responded to the extension by saying, "I'm happy that Rep. Goyke, Rep. Scrhraa are staying at the table with the council of the Governor and our counties on how we can best move forward with the commitment to closing Lincoln Hills, but also being realistic about the timeframe necessary to try to get it right."
