The Pro-Fairness Difference
In 2009, Wisconsin passed the first piece of pro-fairness legislation in nearly three decades: domestic partnership protections. This victory was made possible by the leadership of Governor Jim Doyle, who included this legislation in his 2009-2011 biennial budget, and the incredible support of Joint Finance Committee Co-Chairs State Senator Mark Miller and State Representative Mark Pocan, as well as pro-fairness majorities in both houses of the legislature, lead by Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker and Assembly Speaker Mike Sheridan.
Coming just three years after voters approved our 2006 constitutional amendment banning marriage equality and civil unions, this important step towards full equality underscores the importance of constituent contacts to their legislators, as well as the importance of electing pro-fairness elected officials around the state.
