Rep. Hintz Statement on Assembly Floor Session

MADISON – Today, the Wisconsin State Assembly took action to further politicize the COVID-19 pandemic in Wisconsin, slow down Wisconsin’s recovery and perpetuate the lie that the 2020 election was stolen. Rather than helping Wisconsinites, Republicans voted to slow down our state’s response to the pandemic. Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement on today’s Assembly action:

“Today’s actions by Assembly Republicans are extremely disappointing. Instead of following public health advice to help us defeat COVID-19 more quickly, they chose to pander to unbacked claims and beliefs that are contrary to science. Instead of coming together to address urgent issues facing Wisconsinites during a global pandemic, they chose to prioritize political battles that nobody outside of the State Capitol cares about. Instead of working with election officials or providing the funding necessary to strengthen Wisconsin’s elections, they chose to perpetuate conspiracy theories that threaten our democracy.

“Despite Republicans’ pandering, partisanship and extremism, I remain committed to putting the people of Wisconsin first and focusing on the health, safety, and continued economic recovery of our great state. Wisconsinites are counting on every elected leader to address the important challenges before us in this pandemic. I urge my colleagues to set their political games aside and join us at the table so we can come up with solutions that move Wisconsin forward.”
