Wisconsin Attorney General Schimel goes “On the Issues”
He is working with local law enforcement to stop the dramatic surge in Milwaukee gun violence.
MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Sept. 23, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Schimel has been busy on several fronts since he was elected in November 2014. He is working with local law enforcement to stop the dramatic surge in Milwaukee gun violence, dealing with a heroin and painkiller epidemic in Wisconsin and suing the federal government to allow drug testing for certain welfare recipients. Schimel is also preparing a lawsuit to challenge the Obama administration’s plan to dramatically reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and he made headlines when he criticized potential changes to the state’s open records law.
