Assembly Speaker Robin Vos on the April 4 referendum to amend the constitution to
A constitutional amendment on bail reform bail reform allows courts to consider more relevant factors when setting bail for violent criminals. It strikes a balance between presuming innocence, public safety, and ensuring our judges have the appropriate tools to deal with repeat violent offenders.
The city of Milwaukee broke its homicide record for the third year in a row in 2022 and according to a 2021 news investigation, 1 out of every 5 homicide suspects was already out on bail or signature bond for another felony crime.
That means 20% of violent criminals in Milwaukee are reoffending! This amendment creates a two-tier system for bail between violent crimes and all other crimes. It does not eliminate a right to bail and does not interfere with the American principle of setting reasonable bail.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, 48 states allow courts to consider “dangerousness.”
Bail reform had bipartisan support in both the Assembly and the Senate. Both chambers in the Wisconsin State Legislature have approved this constitutional amendment for two consecutive legislative sessions, the amendment will now be proposed to the voters on the April ballot.

The problem is not really Ronna and the RNC but at the state level. They point to the problems at the state GOP level in Arizona, Georgia, and Pennsylvania. One committeewoman, who is not a Trump fan at this point, told me, “Ronna can’t fix Kelli Ward, but Ronna is fantastic at mitigating those types.”
