Wisconsin Democrats on Gov. Evers’ Special Session Call

MADISON, Wis. — Today, Gov. Evers called on the Legislature to act on the priorities that matter to Wisconsin families, including providing for paid family leave, investing in our public universities, bolstering our workforce and preventing a looming collapse of our child care system. By calling the Legislature into special session, Gov. Evers gave Republican politicians yet another opportunity to do the right thing.

“Republican politicians in Madison are being given a second chance to do what’s right: ensure that parents can get to work and provide for their families without worrying about child care, and that our economy can continue to grow by making smart investments in our workforce,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Communications Director Joe Oslund. “Gov. Evers is leading on the issues working families care about, and it is time for Republicans in the Legislature to do their part and correct the mistakes made in the last state budget.”
