ACTION ALERT–Call State Senators Alberta Darling And John Nygren This Weekend To Stop Public Records Amendment!!

July 4, 2015

There’s no better patriotic act you could do this July 4th weekend then contact the two co-chairs of the Joint Finance Committee and tell them to OPPOSE the closing of public records regarding bill drafts !!!! 

The amendment passed Thursday night would limit public records requests for lawmakers’ communications with their staff and for drafting records of legislation after it’s been introduced in its final version.  As citizens and voters we have a right to know how a bill was presented for introduction, who pushed for it, and what rationalization took place to have it introduced.  Republicans are working to make those public records no longer available to the people.

The people running the show as co-chairs who need your phone call this weekend are:
State Senator Alberta Darling (R-River Hills) 608-266-5830
State Representative John Nygren (R-Marinette) 608-266-2343

You can find contact information for the rest at:

Chastise the Republicans and thank the Democrats for opposing this horrible idea.

It should be noted, to his credit, Rob Cowles, R-Green Bay said he won’t vote for a budget with this item in it.

But for those with a Republican state legislator let them know you’re watching! While you still can!

Now pick the phone up!
