MADISON — The following is a response from Democratic Party of Wisconsin chair Martha Laning on news that the Senate will be called into extraordinary session on November 12 to vote on an aid package for Kimberly-Clark:
“This is politics as usual from Scott Walker and Senate Republicans. They know that voters don’t want more corporate handouts, so they’ve waited until after the election to pass a solution to a problem that Republicans have had months to solve.
“This is an empty promise. Clearly Scott Walker and Senate Republicans care more about saving their own jobs than they do protecting the workers of Fox Valley’s paper industry.”
