Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

Senate approves two bills

The State Senate returned to the floor Tuesday to vote on bills in both Special and Regular session.

The Senate approved Special Session Senate Bill 12, the fiscal elements of the budget repair bill. Special Session Senate Bill 12 demonstrates Wisconsin is responsible and pays its debt. The bill helps the state end the fiscal year with a balanced budget and sets the stage for Governor Walker’s 2011-2013 budget to be balanced.


The Senate approved Assembly Bill 4 during the regular session. The bill repeals the increase in mandatory auto insurance coverage minimums. Assembly Bill 4 is the same as Senate Bill 7, approved earlier this session by the Senate. Senate Bill 7 stalled in the Assembly because of a procedural maneuver, prompting the Senate to approve the Assembly version of the bill today.
