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.

Alaska needs to be like Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, one parent of a minor must consent before an abortion is provided. A minor is allowed to bypass parent by obtaining a court approval. A minor is also allowed to obtain consent from other relatives as an alternative to parental consent.
