Common Cause calls GOP power grab a slap at local voters and taxpayers

The head of Common Cause in Wisconsin says local voters need to call out Republican legislative leaders on their efforts to try and limit the powers of Governor-elect Tony Evers and Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul. That effort will start with a special legislative session this Tuesday. Common Cause Executive Director Jay Heck says it’s clear the GOP leadership is putting its interests ahead of voters.

 

 

The special legislative session would also consider changes to early voting and rescheduling Wisconsin’s 2020 primary to favor a conservative state supreme court justice. Heck says such moves are costly to taxpayers, in the end.

 

 

A similar effort by North Carolina’s legislature was overturned in court after costly litigation.
