Senator Kapenga’s Statement Concerning Abortion Law Special Session


[Madison, WI] — Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) issued the following statement concerning Governor Evers’ call for a Special Legislative Session to address Wisconsin abortion law.


“The United States Supreme Court has yet to issue their opinion, yet the Governor called a Special Session. This is nothing more than a calculated campaign move and the exact reason why the Legislature isn’t in session during campaign season. He’s not fooling anyone with this disingenuous political stunt.

“The Governor announced this Special Session in Milwaukee two weeks ago. If only the Governor could have mustered up some leadership to address the increased crime plaguing our cities. He needs to do better for the people of Wisconsin who are concerned about the safety of their loved ones.”
