A Call To Action From State Senator Chris Larson.
|Action Alert: Help Save Clean Government in Wisconsin!|
Senate Republican leadership had signaled that the Senate would be in session on Tuesday, November 3 to pass two destructive bills that would blow open the doors to more cronyism and corruption in Wisconsin. However, for the second week in a row, the GOP temporarily balked, slowing the runaway Tea Party policy train.
With increased spending and influence being plied on the few remaining moderate Republican legislators, Republican leadership -- with the help of billionaire special interests -- are strong-arming enough votes to pass a bill to politicize the Government Accountability Board as well as a bill that would allow an avalanche of special interest money to flow to political parties, burying principles and values under a mountain of money. Indications are bullying tactics are winning the votes and the GOP will rush the Senate in an extraordinary session on Friday, November 6 to take up these bills.
Democrats, hold-out Republicans, and the majority of our Wisconsin neighbors know that the passage of these bills will shred vital safeguards on clean government in Wisconsin.
