MADISON- Following is the statement of Senator Herb Kohl.

“So many of our friends and neighbors feel that the value of their important work serving Wisconsin is being questioned.  This has been a week of unprecedented mobilization for things we all believe in.  My hope is that the State Senate’s adjournment offers an opportunity for cooler heads and bi-partisan solutions. The same voices that teach our young people and serve and protect our public institutions have a right to be heard at the bargaining table.”
