Rep. Robyn Vining Commends Governor Evers’ Call for Special Session on Education
MADISON – Yesterday, Governor Evers issued an executive order calling the legislature into a special session today, July 27th, related to education funding. The special session would be on two bills that would allocate $550 million to K-12 education and higher education in Wisconsin. Republicans in the Assembly gaveled in and out of the special session without taking action on Governor Evers’ proposals. State Representative Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa) issued the following statement in response:
“After watching Republicans fail to sufficiently fund our schools, we have before us an opportunity to try again. I am disappointed that my Republican colleagues have turned away this opportunity today by gaveling in and out of the special session, but I am not ready to give up. I’m ready to continue to work on what’s best for our kids and our state. Forward together.”
Rep. Vining represents the 14th Assembly District, which includes parts of Brookfield, Wauwatosa, and Milwaukee. For more information, visit Rep. Vining’s website here.
