Gov. Walker signs bill undermining legal rights for veterans poisoned by asbestos
Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today after Gov. Walker privately signed a bill into law that will seriously undermine the legal rights of veterans who have been victims of asbestos poisoning.
“Here in Wisconsin, we have always honored and protected the brave men and women who have served and put their lives on the line for our country, and the bill the governor signed today does them a terrible disservice. Wisconsin is 35th in the nation in job growth, yet this kind of extreme legislation appears to still be the top Republican priority.”
