Gov. Scott Walker and Wisconsin are once again showing conservative reformers nationwide how to get the job done. This month, lawmakers sent Walker the first state version of the REINS Act to be passed by a legislature, and Walker, who has championed the reform, is expected to sign the bill soon.
The REINS Act, introduced by state Sen. Devin LeMahieu (R-Oostburg) and state Rep. Adam Neylon (R-Pewaukee), restores much-needed transparency to the rule making process by requiring that the costliest of regulations receive approval from the full legislature before taking effect. The need for this reform is clear.

because we value our Independence FROM Government NOT Dependence on the government.” -Governor Scott Walker
(the good job that)
Governor Scott Walker’s budget proposal was big on money for K-12 public education – to the tune of more than $600 million over 2 years – but small on expanding education options for Wisconsin families. Fortunately the Governor isn’t the only one with a say on this matter. A day after Walker’s budget address, State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said lifting the caps on enrollment for the statewide school voucher program, Wisconsin Parental Choice Program was “absolutely” something the Senate Republicans would consider.
This is promising news. The current unfair enrollment caps and income limitations placed on the choice program are arbitrarily hindering growth and shutting the schoolhouse door on Green Bay families looking for education options.
–SNIP–The Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) allows eligible families to use a state-funded voucher to send their child to a private school of their choosing. This gives alternatives to the traditional education system that the evidence shows produce better results for students—and we don’t even have to look outside of Wisconsin for the evidence of this. The school choice program in Milwaukee has been quite beneficial in improving the educational outcomes for kids in the City. Academic studies have shown that students in choice schools are more likely to graduate, have higher test scores, and are less likely to become involved in criminal activity. The success has led to rapid growth in the program, with more than 27,000 students enrolled during the previous school year.

RUSH: Here is B.J. in Milwaukee. Hey, B.J., great to have you, get started with you here. How are you doing?
CALLER: I’m doing well. Hi, Rush. Last hour you made a comment about the Democrats linking the Russian suspicion to Trump for even as long as eight years, and who cares if there’s no results, it reminded me of something here in Wisconsin with the John Doe investigation into our great governor, Scott Walker.

Over the last few weeks, angry voters have greeted Republican congressmen in districts around the country. As someone who has confronted similar crowds before — and lived to tell about it — I have a simple message for those lawmakers: It’s put-up or shut-up time.
Those are the exact words I told my fellow Republicans in the State Legislature in 2010, after we made big promises on the campaign trail. It was time to govern, and we did just that by taking on public-sector unions that had too much control over the government. In response, 100,000 protesters descended on the Capitol, while others protested at the executive residence and even my house.
Despite the intimidation, we stood strong in our fight for taxpayers. It paid off, and today the budget is balanced, taxes are down and more people in the state are working than ever.
