MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) today released the following statement on the Republican proposal to make drastic changes to Wisconsin’s campaign finance laws:

“While we are taking time to review this extensive proposal to re-write our campaign finance laws, I find the Republican leadership priorities for the fall session disturbing and I believe citizens will react very negatively when they learn Republicans think we need even more money in our elections and that corporations need an even greater influence over our elections and state government.

“Republicans want to make it easier for corporations to ‘participate in our democracy’ at the same time they have made it increasingly difficult for citizens to do so, by degrading voters’ rights and threatening our open records laws.”
