Statement on Separation of Powers

November 8, 2018

Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement.

“Wisconsin chose a divided government which may result in a slower process.  The state constitution clearly delineates the powers between the branches of government. The legislature appropriates funds, writes laws and approves administrative rules. Our goal is to ensure our constitutional authority is reiterated and enforced.

“Governor-elect Evers made a generous offer to work together so he should not have a problem with the legislation that may be considered. The reforms are intended to keep both sides at the table to reach a consensus.”
