Khalil Coleman Hi all, after meetings with Republican Senate Staffers yesterday here is an update, a number of Republicans are not happy with this bill, the decision whether to move the bill out of the Senate Organizational committee will be made likely by the Republican Caucus. If enough members of the caucus express concern about the bill it may well stall there and not be scheduled.
The Senators they recommended we contact are:
Senator Kedzie - Elkhorn WI, Sen.Kedzie@legis.wisconsin
Senator Ellis , Neenah Sen.Ellis@legis.wisconsin.
Senator Cowles Green Bay Sen.Cowles@legis.wisconsin
Senator Olsen - Ripon Sen.Olsen@legis.wisconsin.
Senator Schultz - Richland Center Sen.Schultz@legis.wisconsi
Senator Harsdorf - River Falls, WI Sen.Harsdorf@legis.wiscons
We are also recommending that you contact Senate Democrats too to make sure that, if this bill gets to the floor, they do not vote for it.

That executive, Kory Teneycke, told the Toronto Star that Sun TV is “taking on the mainstream media [...] smug, condescending, often irrelevant journalism, we’re taking on political correctness [...] by bureaucrats for elites and paid for by taxpayers.”"

"This is the one they said couldn't be done. The Democratic Party and United Wisconsin both passed on this opportunity, so one local citizen, Lori Compas of Fort Atkinson, started the recall against Fitz on her own." Daily Kos
