Gov. calls capitol safety study 'unsettling' without input from Democrats

Governor Tony Evers called a proposal to examine safety protocols at the state capitol “unsettling” because it didn’t have input from law enforcement or Democrats.

Republicans on the joint finance committee approved the measure last week. It would require the Madison Police Department to work with the state’s Department of Administration to conduct a study to improve safety measures for visitors and employees in the building.

But without any prior knowledge of the proposal, Madison Police Spokesman Joel DeSpain said they’re still unsure what they’re involvement would be. The measure still needs to put up for a vote in the full legislature then the governor would decide to implement or not.
