Conservatively Speaking

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.

Mentored hunting's first season is safe and successful

This is fantastic news. Wisconsin’s new mentored hunting law is a resounding success.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, “Mentored hunters were not involved in any shooting incidents” during its first season. That is an amazing statistic given the Journal Sentinel reports “10,564 10- and 11-year-olds were introduced to hunting last fall in Wisconsin, according to DNR statistics, and 13,271 mentored hunting licenses were sold overall.”

During the summer of 2009, I pledged support, writing that the program “
will create more opportunities for families to hunt together safely and carry on a rich Wisconsin heritage.”
