Sen. Bewley Statement on Today’s Special Session

MADISON – Upon the immediate recess of today’s special session on justice reform and policing accountability Senate Democratic Leader Janet Bewley (D-Mason) released the following statement:

“How many more Black lives will be needlessly and tragically lost before my Republican colleagues will act? How many more communities like Kenosha will get pulled apart because they refuse to do anything? It has been 138 days since the Republicans have passed any bills and the best they can come up with is another meaningless task force. Although they recessed today, we know at some point they will quietly adjourn this special session. Wisconsinites are demanding change and the time for action is now. I am calling on Majority Leader Fitzgerald to reconvene immediately and bring the Governor’s bills to the floor for a vote.”
