Groups Call for Hearings on Reform

July 10, 2012

Twenty citizen groups including the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign signed a letter that was delivered today to legislative leaders calling on them to hold public hearings this summer on ways to create more transparency and accountability in Wisconsin elections. The organizations urged Senate and Assembly leaders to schedule the hearings to give the public an opportunity to give them feedback in the wake of historic recall elections in 2011 and 2012 and set the stage for a special legislative session later this year to reform various aspects of the state’s election system.
