Legislative Republicans Launch Distraction From Their Inaction
Today Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement regarding the first Assembly session day of 2016:
“After spending the last year focused on helping special interests and their own self-interests, legislative Republicans seem poised to offer election-year distractions and Band-Aid proposals that do little to address the challenges we face as a state.
“If Republicans were serious about taking meaningful action for the middle class and Wisconsin communities, they would stop ignoring Democratic proposals and work with us toward better roads, stronger schools, more economic opportunity and real relief for all student loan borrowers.”
