Falk: Dane County pursues legal action


MADISON (WKOW) -- Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk and County Board Chair Scott McDonell have directed Dane County attorneys to pursue legal action related to state Senate Republicans passing the budget repair bill without Democrats present.

Falk issued the following statement Thursday:

"In my 35 years of working with the state legislature, I've never seen such a blatant abuse of power and process as what took place in our Capitol Wednesday evening. 

"State officials take an oath to uphold the law and regardless of their zeal to achieve political means, they don't get to chose what laws they'll follow and when.

"This morning, Chair McDonell and I directed our county attorneys to take legal action today to ensure the laws and rules followed by public policymakers in this state for generations are followed."
