Republicans Attack Local Control, Pass Dangerous Bill Gutting

Local Landlord/Tenant Laws

February 11, 2016

MADISON – Representative Lisa Subeck (D-Madison) released the following statement in response to Assembly passage of AB 568 which makes several changes to tenant/landlord law in Wisconsin, specifically stripping local municipalities’ ability to regulate rental properties.

“With this bill, Republicans are once again stripping our local elected officials of the ability to make decisions about issues that impact their communities. This legislation puts special interest wish lists ahead of our local communities and neighborhoods.

Republicans are gutting our local governments’ ability to set policies that promote strong neighborhoods and healthy housing stock."
