Americans for Prosperity State Director David Fladeboe released the following statement:

“Today, Representative Jacque, Representative Hutton, and the Assembly Labor Committee really stepped it up ” said Fladeboe. “We thank them for taking bold leadership to unwind this outdated regulation and save Wisconsin taxpayers millions. They stood up when others refused. Their tenacity and commitment to the people of Wisconsin certainly does not go unnoticed.”

“Americans for Prosperity has been talking to taxpayers around the state about the $890 million dollars repealing this archaic law would save. Today we begin our radio campaign to continue spreading that message. This common sense legislation would save millions that would be better spent on schools, infrastructure or going back into the pockets of hard-working Wisconsin taxpayers. AFP is committed to standing up for Wisconsinites no matter what the special interests have to say.”
