Posted By: March 29, 2013

Washington, D.C., November 10, 1995 — A Bill on the MacBride Principles has been introduced into the State Senate of Wisconsin.

Father Sean McManus, President of the Irish National Caucus visited Wisconsin a couple of years ago to push for a Bill. He said, “I am delighted that we now finally have a Bill. I congratulate the author Senator Brian Burke and the four cosponsors Senator Margaret Farrow (R), Representative Gregory Huber (D), Representative Peter Bach (D) and Representative Frank Boyle (D).”

The MacBride effort in Wisconsin is being lead by Caucus leader Mr. Tom Bruders and Nancy Love of the American Irish Political Education Committee. The Governor of Wisconsin Tommy Thompson (R), is an ardent Irish-American.
