Newsmakers: State Representative Robin Vos

In a Newsmaker interview, Rep. Robin Vos (R-Racine) of Racine outlined the proposed constitutional amendment he and Republican Sen. Joseph Leibham are cosponsoring that would prohibit any federal health-care plan from forcing Wisconsin residents to buy health insurance, or pay a penalty. Vos conceded that, in a Capitol controlled by Democrats, their proposal is unlikely to take any steps forward, however. Vos also talked about bills in the spring session on climate change, changing Milwaukee Public Schools governing structure and southeast Wisconsin’s transportation system.
