Below is an updated public hearing notice on numerous clean elections bills that will be taking place here at your State Capitol tomorrow starting at 10 a.m. in Room 330-Southwest.
If you are able to attend the hearing in person, please do. If this is not possible and you would like to submit a statement, feel free to forward your comments to Sen.Grothman@legis.wisconsin.gov and we will be glad to submit them on your behalf.
Senate Bill 292 – addresses the issue over the last several months when Senator Lena Taylor called for the boycott of businesses because individual employees as private citizens supported Governor Walker and Republican candidates. This bill would not require the disclosure of a citizen’s employer.
Senate Bill 367 – prohibits multiple signatures on recall petitions following the age-old principle of One Person: One Vote.
Senate Bill 374 – the genesis of this bill came when a legislator was contacted by a constituent who was involved in a situation in which recall organizers were paying individuals sign recall petitions.
