Petrowski statement on conference committee report passage
MADISON (PRESS RELEASE)--Petrowski statement on conference committee report passage:
"The past few weeks have been extremely tense and stressful, as I do not take the decisions made in the legislature lightly. As a former union worker, I understand the passion of the protestors and sympathize with them. I have received a tremendous number of phone calls and email messages both for and against the bill that passed today. With that being said, the immediate goal for the legislature was to save thousands of jobs and put the state of Wisconsin back on sound fiscal footing."
