State legislators who represent Waukesha County said the state mining bill that passed the Assembly on Thursday will ultimately lead to the creation of more jobs throughout the Wisconsin — not just northern Wisconsin. “This will allow an investment by a private company, which has stated they will invest nearly $1.5 billion in our state," said state Rep. Mike Kuglitsch (R-New Berlin) in a statement. "The proposed mine will hire approximately 700 direct employees and roughly 2,100 additional jobs, some of which will be located here in southeast Wisconsin."

Representative David Craig (R-Vernon) calls support for bill prohibiting certain types of bullets 'an assault on Wisconsin's hunting tradition.'
Friday afternoon four democratic Milwaukee legislators, Wisconsin State Senator Nikiya Harris and Representatives Mandela Barnes, Evan Goyke and Fred Kessler, circulated for support a proposal that would prohibit deer and bear hunters from using the only ammunition currently allowed in Wisconsin to hunt deer and bear. In response, Rep. Dave Craig (R-Vernon) issued the following statement: “This assault on our state’s rich hunting tradition is appalling.

Barnes, …

Waukesha County lawmakers express 'grave concern and anguish' over sentence of East Troy mother, who received one year in jail and 14 years probation in the deaths of her 11-month-old twins.
Two Waukesha County lawmakers are joining other state legislators in decrying what they say is a light sentence for woman convicted of child abuse in the deaths of her infant twins. In September 2011, Melody Butt's twin girl and boy were in a bathtub and drowned after the East Troy woman admitted she had fallen asleep. Her husband came home to find the two children unresponsive. On Tuesday, a Walworth County judge sentenced her to one year in jail with work-release privileges and 14 years of probation — a sentence that even her husband didn't think was harsh enough, according to FOX 6 News. State Rep. Dave Craig (R-Vernon) and state Sen. Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) joined five other lawmakers in sending a letter to Wisconsin Department of …
