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.”
Press Releases by Peter Barca
“These Republican bills do nothing to address the burden of student debt and the people of Wisconsin shouldn’t fall for the Republicans’ lack of action with these modest election-year smoke and mirrors.”
“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Rep. Tamara Grigsby.”
“Assembly Democrats stand united against hateful speech, no matter when or where that occurs.”
