Jun 6 2019

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul issued the following statement in reaction to tonight’s vote by the Joint Finance Committee on DOJ’s budget:


“By adding positions for the crime labs, supporting the Division of Criminal Investigation, and authorizing DOJ to hire another Assistant AG who will prosecute sexual assault cases, the Joint Finance Committee has taken significant steps in the right direction,” said Attorney General Kaul. “While there are important improvements to be made, including avoiding a funding cut to the Division of Legal Services, I look forward to working together with members of the Legislature and with Governor Evers as the budget process moves forward.”
