Senator Kapenga’s Statement on Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision Concerning Gubernatorial Appointments


[Madison, WI] — Senator Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield) issued the following statement regarding the Wisconsin Supreme Court decision that confirms the Senate’s scope and power to approve gubernatorial appointees:


“Governor Tony Evers and Attorney General Josh Kaul continue to file lawsuits when they don’t get their way—wasting taxpayer dollars—and losing time after time in the courts. Even a Dane County judge dismissed this case and knew the lawsuit was without merit.

“Today’s ruling by the Wisconsin Supreme Court yet again confirms our state’s strong commitment to checks and balances and affirms the Wisconsin State Senate’s authority to confirm or not confirm the Governor’s nominees.“
