Statement from Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on Act 10 Ruling
MADISON – The following is a statement from Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on today’s 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on 2011 Wisconsin Act 10.
“Today’s ruling by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals is an immense setback for Wisconsin’s middle class families who are already suffering a lack of job creation,” said Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson. “After half a century of labor progress in Wisconsin, upholding this divisive legislation will only hurt Wisconsin’s working, middle class families. The 7th Circuit’s determination that the calculated protection of political favorites and the targeting of political foes is constitutionally permissible is a sad deterioration of our Wisconsin values.”
