MADISON, WI – In response to a Republican legislative proposal that will repeal Wisconsin’s civil service protections and increase political patronage in state government, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“The repeal of civil service protections is an invitation to more corruption in a Republican administration that continues to be plagued by scandals, cronyism and special interest influence. Rather than looking for ways to tear down Wisconsin workers, we should be focused on strengthening our middle class, boosting family wages and ensuring greater retirement security.”
