One Wisconsin Institute Statements on Walker Administration Emergency Rule on State Identification Cards

MADISON, Wis. — The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Institute Executive Director Scot Ross regarding Gov. Walker’s approval of an emergency DOT rule regarding issuing identification cards:
