(MADISON) – During the Joint Committee on Finance meeting today, Senator Lena Taylor (D-Milwaukee) and Finance Democrats offered a motion to require the Governor, Supreme Court, and Legislature request technical assistance from the Council of State Governments’ Finance Committee. Following the committee session, Senator Taylor offered the following statements:

“Justice reinvestment must be a priority. It certainly is not a priority of Governor Walker, who prides himself on how dismissive he can be to people who are incarcerated. It is clear that we need outside assistance to serve our incarcerated population and help them become the productive members of society I know they can be.”
