Conservatively Speaking

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.

State Senate toughens penalties for No Call List violations


The state Senate has approved legislation increasing penalties for violators of Wisconsin’s popular No Call List.

Current Wisconsin law prohibits telephone solicitors from making calls to residential customers that have registered with the No Call List maintained by the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).  Violators are currently are subject to a forfeiture of $100. Senate Bill 218 (SB 218) that I support increases the penalty for a violation to a forfeiture of not less than $1,000 or more than $10,000.

SB 218 also allows a person who suffers damages due to a violation to seek relief for actual damages or $500 per violation, whatever is greater.

The state Assembly will now consider SB 218.
