MADISON – State Representative Lisa Subeck (D – Madison), ranking Democratic member on the Assembly Committee on Public Benefit Reform, issued the following statement today in response to Governor Walker’s call for a special session to take up bills that would limit access to basic necessities for Wisconsin’s most vulnerable families:

“After eight years of Scott Walker’s so called ‘reforms,’ families across Wisconsin are still living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to make ends meet.

Instead of expanding new opportunities or increasing wages for working families, the Governor is threatening to limit access to food and shelter for struggling families with children. As Governor Walker and Republicans call this special session in a naked attempt to score political points at the expense of our most vulnerable neighbors, Democrats will continue fighting for reforms that create family supporting jobs and policies that make it easier, not harder, for Wisconsin families to get ahead.”
