Wis. Legislature: Statement from Legislative Leaders

Contact: Senator Scott Fitzgerald (608)-266-5660
Representative Robin Vos (608)-266-9171

Madison- Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) and Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement on the extraordinary session for the legislature.

“The legislature will come back in an extraordinary session next week to finish our work.  Wisconsin law, written by the legislature and signed into law by a governor, should not be erased by the potential political maneuvering of the executive branch. In order to find common ground, everyone must be at the table.

“One of the top priorities for the special session is to pass legislation to ensure people with pre-existing conditions will always have access to affordable health insurance coverage in Wisconsin.

“Our state must stay open for business. WEDC, our economic development agency, must continue to have the ability to help spur job creation and business opportunities without fear of being shut down.

“The legislature is the most representative branch in government and we will not stop being a strong voice for our constituents.”
