Madison…Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement concerning the decision handed down by the Wisconsin State Supreme Court in SEIU v. Vos:
“Our state’s founders established co-equal branches of government in Wisconsin. This ruling reaffirms that each branch is equal to the other. This idea runs counter to what the governor and attorney general seem to believe. They deem the executive branch is the most important one and should unilaterally rule over the state.
“The governor and attorney general can continue to try to work around the legislature and violate laws when doing so, or they can begin to understand that there are checks and balances set forth in our representative democracy, just as the state high court reminded them today.”
