Statement from Rep. Barca on GOP Civil Service Proposal
"This is yet another politically motivated attack on hardworking state employees."
MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) released the following statement today regarding the new civil service proposal being pushed by Governor Walker and Republican legislators:
“This is yet another politically motivated attack on hardworking state employees. It is especially concerning that this attack on our civil service system opens the door for corruption and cronyism during an Administration rife with scandals and charges of unethical conduct. Also, this once again violates a giant promise the Governor made during Act 10 that public employees would be protected by civil service.”
