[Madison, WI]  Late last Friday afternoon, Governor Evers rescinded 82 appointments the Senate had confirmed during the extraordinary session in December. The move resulted in some state boards and commissions having their membership decimated and even stalled decisions on major energy projects in front of the Public Service Commission.

Today, Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald sent all 82 appointees a letter regarding their confirmation in the Senate and the unnecessary actions taken by the governor while this matter continues to work its way through the courts.

Read the letter here.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) represents the 13th Senate District, which covers portions of Dodge, Jefferson, Waukesha, Washington, Dane, and Columbia counties.
