MADISON – After the Republicans on the Joint Finance Committee voted to gut Wisconsin’s long standing tradition of open government laws, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

The public should have every right to hold their elected officials accountable and maintain a system of government that is open, honest and free of corruption.”
