MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - The Manitowoc County supervisors say they are opposed to Republican-backed legislation that would reduce the power of the Milwaukee County Board.
The legislation reduces the Milwaukee County Board's resources and authority. It also reduces the length of supervisor terms and limits the board's authority over certain deals.
The Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter says the Manitowoc County supervisors weighed in this week to express their disapproval over the resolution. Supervisor Jim Brey said state legislators have no business telling Manitowoc County officials how to do their jobs.
The board passed a resolution 20-4 Tuesday opposing the state's legislation.
The state bill was approved by the state Senate last week and ratified by the Assembly on a voice vote. It now goes to Gov. Scott Walker, who's expected to sign it.
