Keep Up the WiscNet Advocacy (Especially with These 8 Representatives)

Telecommunications lobbyist have been working overtime to push back on the WiscNet compromise

As a result, contacting the 8 Assembly representatives listed below is absolutely critical to ensure that they maintain the positions that they have stated in their letter to Speaker Fitzgerald & JFC Co-Chair Vos opposing the WiscNet and UW grant provisions

Rep. Howard Marklein (51st Assembly District)
Rep. Travis Tranel (49th Assembly District)
Rep. Tom Larson (67th Assembly District)
Rep. Roger Rivard (75th Assembly District)
Rep. Warren Petryk (93rd Assembly District)
Rep. John Murtha (29th Assembly District)
Rep. Kathy Bernier (68th Assembly District)
Rep. Tom Tiffany (35th Assembly District)

That being said, every legislator needs our continued, full attention.  Both the Senate and Assembly are important but because the budget is now in the Assembly this is the most critical House. (There is also some feeling that the Senate has already agreed to remove the onerous WiscNet and UW grant provisions. )
