Statement: Special Session Call
August 24, 2020
Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement in response to Governor Evers’ Executive Order calling for a Special Session following the officer-involved shooting in Kenosha.
“One hour after the announcement of the speaker’s task force, Governor Evers releases a Special Session call of the Legislature. When I spoke to Governor Evers on the phone today, I asked him to work with the Legislature in a deliberate and open process through the task force. We have an opportunity to bring people together to find solutions. Instead, the governor is choosing to turn to politics again by dictating liberal policies that will only deepen the divisions in our state.”
