MADISON – Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement after Gov. Scott Walker signed Senate Bill 43 into law making it harder to investigate and prosecute political corruption:

“Republicans should be less concerned about covering up Gov. Walker’s political scandals and more focused on helping hardworking Wisconsin families. This move is a gross abuse of political power at a time when we have a shrinking middle class, declining family wages and stagnant job creation in Wisconsin. Rather than enabling more corruption and covering up Gov. Walker’s political scandals, we should be helping working families, investing in our communities and encouraging economic prosperity.”
