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.
Rejected from the state budget last year, the plan to provide health insurance for everyone in the state is being re-worked by Senate Democrats attempting to take action on the proposal before the end of the session next Thursday, March 13.
I raise the same question about government health care as I do about the Compact legislation. How are legislators expected to vote on such monumental pieces of legislation without time to digest the substance of these bills? This tactic is also extremely unfair to the news media and the general public that will not have time to examine the bills.
Stay tuned to see whether Senate Democrats have other last-minute surprises.
