Wisconsin Passes Dangerous Legislation

By Charlotte Robinson, January 21, 2024


The Wisconsin legislative session kicked off this week with Republican extremists passing two dangerous bills. The first attacking LGBTQ freedom by undermining school curriculum & another reducing gun safety. The first bill attacks our LGBTQ community by forcing teachers to out LGBTQ students to their parents & categorize lessons around race & gender as “controversial,” requiring parental review. The bill will soon be considered by the Wisconsin Senate where the Republican supermajority will likely send this bill to the governor’s desk. The second GOP bill passed entirely along partisan lines would reduce transparency around gun sales. Abhi Rahman, Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Communications Director stated, “Republicans in Wisconsin wasted no time this week in advancing their dangerous, backward agenda during the legislative session. From erasing LGBTQ+ identities in schools to loosening common-sense gun regulations, Republican legislation strips Wisconsinites of their core freedoms & safety. The DLCC is focused on building Democratic power in both chambers to prevent Republican supermajorities in both chambers, which would surely override Gov. Evers’ veto power to pass an onslaught of dangerous MAGA legislation. Wisconsin is at the forefront of the battle for fundamental freedoms.” Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin concluded, “Right now I am working tirelessly to ensure Democrats, from President Biden on down, win the critical swing state of Wisconsin & protect our fundamental rights & freedoms. As members of the LGBTQ+ community, I encourage you to stay involved, stay active & work alongside your community to preserve our progress, defend our rights & ensure our society moves forward, not backward.” For More Info…
