STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY GENERAL J.B. VAN HOLLEN ON FEDERAL COURT DECISION UPHOLDING 2011 WIS. ACT 10

 

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen issued the following statement in response to today’s decision by United States District Court Judge William M. Conley in Laborers Local 236, et al. v. Walker, et al., case no. 11-CV-462-WMC (W. D. Wis.), dismissing constitutional challenges to 2011 Wis. Act 10, also known as the “Budget Repair Bill:”

 

“This case proves, once again, that Act 10 is constitutional in all respects and that the challenges to the law are baseless.  I appreciate decisions like this that follow the law, and I look forward to bringing the remaining state court challenges before the Wisconsin Supreme Court, where we expect Act 10 to be upheld once again.
