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.
During the 2005 legislative session, I authored an abstinence bill that was approved by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Doyle. Under the law, school boards that choose to provide sex education are required to present abstinence as the preferred choice of behavior.
The law is now under attack and in jeopardy.
According to Wisconsin Family Action, “Assembly Bill 458/Senate Bill 324 does away with the current requirement that abstinence must be presented as the very best behavior choice for unmarried students.”
Blogger Randy Melchert has posted an entry about Tuesday’s Assembly hearing on the legislation that got quite heated. Melchert’s blog includes YouTube videos of testimony in opposition to the legislation by Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action and Matt Sande of Pro Life
AB458/SB324 is dangerous legislation that must be rejected.
