Assembly Dems Squander Opportunity to do the Right Thing; Play Dirty Politics Instead

MADISON – Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R – Kaukauna) released the following statement after Assembly Democrats submitted last-minute amendments with overtly partisan motives.

“Today showed both the best and the worst sides of the Assembly. Today’s session was meant to be focused on saving lives. Members of both parties have had ample opportunities to submit serious amendments, yet Assembly Democrats have decided to deliberately break faith in order to coordinate fundraising off of less-than-honest amendments. The Assembly Democrats have hijacked these bipartisan and noble bills for personal gains. It is despicable, and all those involved should be ashamed.”
