Rep. Steineke Statement on Kenosha Decision

MADISON – State Representative Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) released the following statement following the Kenosha County District Attorney’s announcement that no charges would be filed against the police officer who shot Jacob Blake in August:

“Today’s decision will undoubtedly spark debate and scrutiny in communities throughout the state. That’s why Speaker Vos called for the creation of the Speaker’s Task Force on Racial Disparities, and why I am working across the aisle to find solutions that will reduce these types of instances when possible, and provide further clarity and transparency when not. Our work will carry on, and I am hopeful that we will meet our goal of creating meaningful change.”
