MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today about Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald‘s comments regarding his plan to fast-track proposed “Right to Work for Less” legislation:
“I call on Governor Walker to put the brakes on this divisive issue that clearly will damage Wisconsin’s middle class.

I look forward to meeting with the Governor – hopefully as soon as today – to discuss this issue.
