MADISON – Thursday, State Senator Melissa Agard joined her Democratic colleagues as they re-introduced the Economic Justice Bill of Rights joint resolution. Senate Democratic Leader Agard released the following statement:

melissa-agard“As we engage with the Governor's proposed budget and enter into the heart of the 2023-24 legislative session, we should embrace the best of Wisconsin’s progressive past and articulate a clear vision for Wisconsin’s future. The Economic Justice Bill of Rights is our guide to ensure the success of our communities moving forward.

“One of the reasons I’m so proud to be a Democrat is because we support policies that improve the lives’ of others. My Democratic colleagues and I will continue working to help people achieve economic opportunity and economic justice, and the Economic Bill of Rights outlines the path forward, towards a more equitable future and a better Wisconsin.”

“We must take a multi-faceted approach towards achieving economic justice – this includes ensuring adequately funded public education and affordable, accessible child care; a fair wage for everyone; unions, public or private, and collective bargaining; a restorative and equitable justice system; affordable, accessible health care; and so much more.”
