Statement on the Court Injunction of Forced Ultrasounds
MADISON - The following is a statement of Senate Democratic Leader Chris Larson on the court injunction of the GOP's forced ultrasound law.
"Once again, extreme GOP legislation has been blocked by the courts, while Wisconsin continues to suffer in the Republican's lagging economy. The decision to halt this unnecessary attack on Wisconsin women is a welcome first step, but the focus of the Wisconsin State Senate must turn to jobs, and away this type of extreme social legislation that wastes taxpayer dollars in lengthy court battles.
"Extreme GOP policy after extreme GOP policy has been constitutionally suspect, only creating jobs for lawyers while Wisconsin's middle class families continue to struggle to make ends meet. It's time for the Wisconsin Legislature to get back to what our constituents sent us to Madison to do: create jobs."
