Letter to the editor: Vote 'no' Aug. 13


To the editor,

In the Aug. 13 election, please vote “NO” on the two proposed Wisconsin constitutional amendments.

If approved, these proposed changes would require legislative approval from both the senate and the assembly before the governor could accept and allocate federal funds for Wisconsin. These proposed changes are not fixing a problem, and they don’t belong in our Wisconsin Constitution.

Here are five good reasons to vote “NO”:

  1. These changes would slow our Wisconsin government’s response to emergencies when we need help the most.
  2. It’s our federal tax money coming back to us when Wisconsin gets federal funds.
  3. In times of need, Wisconsinites cannot afford to have their relief held up in legislative gridlock.
  4. Our governor is held accountable for how federal funds are spent by Wisconsin voters in our whole state.
  5. Our laws already give our legislators a big say in how tax dollars are spent through the state budget-making process.

Vote “NO” in the Aug. 13 election.
