Lazich statement on approval of Senate Bill 11
State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) issued the following statement following the Senate approval of Senate Bill 11 Wednesday night.
“For nearly three weeks, the Senate Democrats have delayed approval of a badly-needed budget repair bill. The Senate Democrats ignoring their responsibilities as elected officials have ignored repeated efforts to negotiate on the bill. Something needs to be done to balance the budget in the current year and avoid large-scale layoffs of public employees. By approving Senate Bill 11 tonight, Senate Republicans avoid layoff.
“I look forward to the return of Senate Democrats to debate and vote on the quorum-required aspects of the bill.”
