MADISON (WKOW) -- Sen. Fred Risser (D-Madison) issued a statement Monday night in response to Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald's comments on the voting rights of Senate Democrats.

Here is the full text of Risser's statement:

"Who does Senator Fitzgerald think he is?  Just because his brother is the Speaker of the Assembly and his best friend is the Governor of Wisconsin does not give him the power to decide who can and cannot vote in the State Senate.

His statement that Senate Democrats can no longer vote in committee is the height of arrogance.  In my tenure in the legislature, I have never seen any attempt to deny duly elected legislators their right to vote."
