OSHKOSH – Today, legislative Democrats proposed the enactment of a Wisconsin Equal Rights Amendment. Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement:

“I am proud to support this resolution to guarantee equal rights in Wisconsin’s state constitution. Our state has a long tradition of fighting for equal protection of its residents, and I am proud that Wisconsin was one of the first states to ratify a federal Equal Rights Amendment in 1972. We should build upon that action in the 20th century by passing a state constitutional amendment in the 21st century.”

“Too many Wisconsinites still face inequality and unfair treatment simply because of who they are. So the question we must ask as state leaders is what are we doing to fight for a more equal state? Adopting this state constitutional amendment would show we are listening to all Wisconsin residents and show our state truly values equality. I urge my legislative colleagues to support this important constitutional amendment.”
