From the Wisconsin Constitution:
“Organization of legislature; quorum; compulsory attendance. SECTION 7.
Each house shall be the judge of the elections, returns and qualifications of its own members; and a majority of each shall constitute a quorum to do business, but a smaller number may adjourn from day to day, and may compel the attendance of absent members in such manner and under such penalties as each house may provide”
Order the missing representatives to return and have the courage to vote NO if they are so inclined. I would strongly consider demanding they return to the job or face an immediate RECALL. Wisconsin provides the ability to recall members. Another possible option is to demand they come back or be declared that they have “vacated their office”.
It is time for adults to make the hard decisions. Collective Bargaining is NOT a right guaranteed under the Wisconsin Constitution or the US Constitution.Randy Kubetz
