Sen. Lassa reacts to GOP vote


MADISON (PRESS REELASE)--State Senator Julie Lassa (D-Stevens Point) issued the following statement in response to the Republican's move to end collective bargaining rights for public employees:

"This is truly a sad night for Wisconsin democracy. In the dark of night, in blatant violation of open meeting laws, and without even having a bill in front of them, the Republican leaders of the Assembly and Senate used a shady procedural move to end fifty years of workers' rights in Wisconsin. Deaf to the pleas of the overwhelming majority of Wisconsin citizens, Governor Walker and Republican legislators have demonstrated absolute contempt for the democratic process. They should be ashamed of themselves."
