Senator Taylor Questions Supreme Court Decision
"This sets an awful precedent."
(MADISON) – In response to the recent 4-3 vote of the Wisconsin Supreme Court to uphold the extraordinary session limiting the power of Governor Tony Evers, Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement:
“Interpretation is everything and it matters who is doing the interpreting.”
“Bottom line, state law is vague on describing extraordinary sessions. However, that doesn’t mean our values have to be vague. This sets an awful precedent. An existing administration spitefully limited the power of an incoming successor, period. I learned a long time ago that just because you can do something, doesn’t always mean you should.”
