Erpenbach Responds to Vos Press Conference with No New Ideas

State Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point) released the following statement in response to the Assembly GOP press conference today.

By - Nov 17th, 2020 03:17 pm

“Today we saw a total lack of leadership from Representative Vos, and Senate Republicans were absent altogether. April 15th was the last time we took the floor to address this issue and Robin Vos hasn’t brought a thing to the table since. The latest Republican ‘ideas’ of testing and contact tracing could have, in fact, should have, been addressed months ago were it not for GOP inaction.

Ever since Republicans went to court to stop The Evers Administration from combating COVID-19, we’ve been told by the GOP that they were working on legislation. That was months ago, and still nothing.

Ninety-two people have died since yesterday and Speaker Vos is still trying to blame Governor Evers. As the Governor has been saying over and over again, his door has been open, it’s the majority Republicans who continue to say no. And, it’s not lost on Wisconsinites that the Republican Speaker of the State Assembly held a press conference today and said nothing.”
