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.
The court’s 6-3 ruling says states can require a photo ID without violating the constitutional rights of voters.
In a major ruling today, the U.S. Supreme Court, in upholding a law in Indiana, ruled that states may enact photo ID requirements for voting.
The legislative session that concluded in Wisconsin in mid-March ended with state Senate Democrats failing to schedule a Senate vote on a constitutional amendment that would have required a photo ID. Had the Senate voted and approved the amendment that I co-sponsored, it surely would have passed overwhelmingly in a statewide referendum.
