MADISON – State Representative Lisa Subeck (D – Madison) released the following statement today regarding the extraordinary session:

“The people of Wisconsin made it crystal clear on November 6 that they are sick and tired of politicians who put politics ahead of people. Yet here we are back in the State Capitol where Republicans are ramming through sweeping changes in an unprecedented power grab that totally and completely undercuts the will of the voters.

Despite an onslaught of Republican attempts to rig the rules in their own favor, the people voted for new leadership in our state. Now, Republicans are changing the rules again in a desperate attempt to cling to their own power despite the will of the people.

Wisconsinites want us to come together to solve the problems facing our state. Instead of putting politics and power ahead of people, Republicans should work with our incoming administration for the good of Wisconsin.”
