Response from the GAB on Adequacy of Wisconsin Voter ID Funding

In response to an earlier post, WI GAB Has Only Tiny Budget to Get Out Word About New Voter ID Requirements, Reid Magney, public information officer for the GAB writes:

Your tweet about GAB generated a call from MSNBC.


FYI, we haven’t specifically asked the Legislature for funding.  We made them aware that if they want a campaign, it’s a policy decision for them to make.  And they have some time to make that decision.


The budget we have is adequate to update the campaign to be ready if they want to spend money to put it on the air.  If they don’t, we can still use free and earned media to get the message out, just not as widely.
