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.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, signed into law during 2006 by President George W. Bush, is constitutional.
A lower court had ruled Congress went beyond its authority, approving legislation that could incarcerate dangerous sex offenders beyond their prison terms. The Supreme Court reversed that ruling, with Justice Stephen Breyer writing the majority opinion:
"The statute is a 'necessary and proper' means of exercising the federal authority that permits Congress to create federal criminal laws, to punish their violation, to imprison violators, to provide appropriately for those imprisoned and to maintain the security of those who are not imprisoned by who may be affected by the federal imprisonment of others.”
