MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today applauding Attorney General Brad Schimel’s comments in regard to the Joint Finance Committee (JFC) dismantling Wisconsin’s open records laws:

“I am proud of our Attorney General for taking this principled stand against this egregious and outrageous policy that many members of his own party support.

“The Attorney General is correct that transparency is the cornerstone of democracy. This change is being criticized by leaders and groups of all political stripes, and it is so important that he has publicly supported the view of so many of our citizens on this extremely vital issue to our democracy and the institution of representative government in Wisconsin.

“There is no more important Wisconsin value than protecting clean, open and transparent government.”
