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.”

"Allowing anyone to carry a loaded, concealed firearm without a background check or safety training has implications almost certainly do not fully understand."
"From Right-to-Work to repealing prevailing wage, the PLA bill is just another in a long line of GOP policies that adversely affect Wisconsin workers..."
"Attorney General Brad Schimel is fighting for his party, not democracy."
"We should not be spending another cent defending unconstitutional legislative maps."
"Between the GOP leadership in the legislature and the governor, this week has delivered a double whammy for Wisconsin workers."
"It’s ironic that the Republicans are seemingly using the same lack of transparency that led to our state having one of the worst cases of gerrymandering in history"
