Steineke Responds to New Assistant DA Positions for NE Wisconsin

MADISON – Included in the Republican-backed WISCONSIN Budget but vetoed by Governor Evers was a provision to provide additional assistant district attorney positions for counties in need across the state. State Representative Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ announcement of new assistant district attorney positions:

“When we included funding for new assistant district attorney positions in our WISCONSIN Budget, we did so because we knew how crucial these positions were for so many counties in our state. I am glad to see Governor Evers has followed our lead on this issue by providing the same number of positions for Outagamie and Brown Counties as we included in the budget.”
