Rep. Peter Barca Statement on Special Session
“The opioid epidemic in our state is a very serious issue that requires a very aggressive response.”
“The opioid epidemic in our state is a very serious issue that requires a very aggressive response. I hope the committees will collect input from those who know this issue firsthand—from law enforcement, to educators, to medical professionals—as this will help us address this crisis in the most comprehensive manner possible.
“The urgency of this special session is warranted, and I hope Gov. Walker takes the same approach to other incredibly significant issues facing Wisconsin families right now, including rebuilding the most diminished middle class in the country. As elected officials, we need to do everything we can to address those who are hurting.”
Press Releases by Peter Barca
"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"
“The GOP has let the taxpayers of Wisconsin down.”
“This is another shameless attack by Republicans on Wisconsin workers.”
The governor has bragged about his tax policies, while neglecting to mention that his cuts have largely benefitted the wealthy of our state.
“I am excited about the wealth of experience, dedication and talent our Democratic members will bring to their respective committees”
