State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced today the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) is filing two petitions with the Wisconsin State Supreme Court regarding Wisconsin’s voter id law.
The motions filed with the State Supreme Court will be a Petition to Bypass the Court of Appeals and Motion for Consolidation. The Department of Justice will ask the court to lift injunctions, put in place by two Dane County judges, against Wisconsin voter id law. Lifting the injunctions ensure the voter id law is in place before the general election November 6, 2012.
I applaud the Attorney General’s decision to seek an injunction against the stays issued by two Dane County judges and working to ensure voter ID law is in place for the general election November 6, 2012. Wisconsin is shaping up to be a battleground for the presidential election. With the presidential election, a contentious United State Senate race, and numerous State Senate and Assembly races, ensuring Wisconsin’s electoral process is above reproach is incredibly important.
