State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
An obscure provision in a bill approved by Congress would remove the power of the President to call up National Guard troops during emergencies and return the authority to the nation’s governors.
President Bush reportedly will sign the measure into law. President Bush has not used his authority to call up state Guard units this year. However, Republican and Democrat governors have contended that the states are in a better position to decide if and when Guard units are to be called into service.
