Wisconsin Supreme Court upholds GOP's lame-duck laws

MADISON (WKOW) — This morning, the League of Women Voters — the plaintiffs in the lawsuit — are responding to the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the laws enacted during this year’s Lame-Duck session.

The Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin, Erin Grunze, issued the following statement:

“We are disappointed the court ruled in favor of the Legislature’s extraordinary session that undermined the Wisconsin Constitution’s limit on its power. Wisconsin voters put their trust in their Legislature to operate with transparency and to respect constitutional limits. As an organization dedicated to serving these voters, the League will continue the work of protecting the public’s trust in the rule of law.”

The president of the League of Women Voters of the United States, Chris Carson added the following:

“Today’s decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court undermines the will of Wisconsin voters. The Wisconsin State Legislature’s actions defied the democratic process, which is a major blow to our democracy as a whole. The League remains dedicated to defending the will of voters, despite today’s decision.”
