Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

Wisconsin roundabouts could face legal challenge


The Wisconsin Department of Transportation is on a roundabout rampage. 

The La Crosse Tribune reports opponents in Prairie du Chien are ready to engage in a legal battle on behalf of the disabled. The newspaper writes:

“Opponents of traffic roundabouts in Prairie du Chien have a new weapon: a blind attorney from Michigan who says Wisconsin is heading for a legal showdown if it doesn’t back off plans to build roundabouts. Richard Bernstein, specializing in disability rights cases, has battled roundabouts in his home state — and threatened lawsuits in Wisconsin — on the grounds they violate the federal Americans with Disabilities Act.” 

Bernstein told the Tribune a court fight is inevitable.

Here is more information about Bernstein’s previous challenge to roundabouts, a Detroit TV news story, and a Michigan Lawyers Weekly article.
