A new legislative session has ushered in heightened political activity as Republican lawmakers deal with needed repairs to transportation spending and revenue sources, repealing the state’s prevailing wage law, doing away with competition-killing Project Labor Agreements, ending the legalized sale of baby body parts, calling for a Constitutional Convention, and so on.
Wisconsin citizens expect their voices in the legislature to make meaningful progress at cleaning up how Wisconsin does business and are understandably upset when Speaker Robin Vos imposes a climate of fear, disrupting good bills. Outspoken Reps such as Andre Jacque, Jesse Kremer and Janel Brandtjen, who have lost committee chairs and had bills held up, have been noticed for their stands.
On Tuesday the Forum will again host Tony Urso for his experience and insight to discuss these critical issues. Urso will also describe Wisconsinites who have a significant role in the start of the new Trump administration.
Lastly, Tony Urso will be launching a new national project for grassroots activists, which he will present.
Bio: Tony Urso is the former chief of staff for the Ted Cruz SuperPAC Stand for Principle. He is known for his state activism that killed ObamaCare bill AB210 and for helping to pass SB619 to repeal Common Core.
