Statement: Attorney General’s Decision to Resolve Challenge to WI Law on Dues-Checkoff Authorizations

May 31, 2019     

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement on the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) announcement that it has resolved International Association of Machinists District 10 v. Allen.

“This is another blatant example of the partisanship at the helm of the Wisconsin Department of Justice. Our Attorney General is shirking his duty to defend state law in order to appease liberal interest groups. It's becoming clear Josh Kaul will undermine, not defend, state law. He has become just a political puppet for the far left."
