Cities, towns, and counties in Wisconsin that take money away from their police departments would get less money from the state under a new plan headed out of the state Senate.
Lawmakers OK’d the plan, Senate Bill 119, on a party-line vote, 20-12.
The proposal imposes a dollar-for-dollar cut in state aid for every dollar that local governments take away from law enforcement. Any money that is withheld by the state would then be reinvested into cities, towns, and counties that spend more on their police departments.Sen. Van Wanggaard (R-Racine) is the plan’s author.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
