A century ago, Wisconsin was known as America’s “laboratory of democracy.” The state was a source of innovative ideas that inspired the legislative accomplishments of the Progressive Era and the New Deal. Hong and Shelton, two of the most dynamic and outspoken members of the current legislature, believe it is time for Wisconsin to retake its place as a generator of ideas and social progress. They’ll discuss their ideas — including their sweeping Economic Justice Bill of Rights — with Capital Times associate editor John Nichols.
