MADISON (WORT) — Wisconsin Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca declared that next week will mark the end of “clean, open and transparent government.”
Barca’s grim prediction comes as GOP lawmakers are poised to pass three major bills in the Assembly.
Next week, the full Assembly will vote on legislation that limits the scope of secret John Doe investigations. The other two bills make significant changes to state election law and how ethics laws are enforced. As part of the reform package, the independent Government Accountability Board would be scrapped for two commissions compromised of partisan appointees.
