Civil Dialogue with Speaker Robin Vos (R) and Minority Leader Rep. Peter Barca (D)

Watch the program

In the January edition of Civil Dialogue, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R) and Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca talked about the mining bill developed by Republicans who control the Legislature and controversies over whether it will lower environmental protections and how soon it could create jobs. They also previewed the 2013-15 budget that Gov. Scott Walker will present on Feb. 20 and the lack of agreement over how to make up what Vos has estimated as a looming 10-year, $4 billion shortfall in paying for transportation programs. Both also said they do not expect any new gun-control bills to debated in the wake of the Dec. 14 killing of 20 children and six school professionals at Sandy Hook Elementary.
