Press release just issued by Dane County: County Executive Falk Statement: Dane County Pursues Legal Action....

Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk issued the following statement on Thursday morning, after she and County Board Chair Scott McDonell directed Dane County attorneys to pursue legal action related to the state legislature’s recent actions:

“In my 35 years of working with the state legislature, I’ve never seen such a blatant abuse of power and process as what took place in our Capitol Wednesday evening.

State officials take an oath to uphold the law and regardless of their zeal to achieve political means, they don’t get to chose what laws they’ll follow and when.

This morning, Chair McDonell and I directed our county attorneys to take legal action today to ensure the laws and rules followed by public policymakers in this state for generations are followed.”
