Nass seeking permission to sue after UW System refuses to submit COVID-19 policies for review

A key Republican lawmaker says he’s seeking permission to sue the UW System after President Tommy Thompson vowed to reject a JCRAR request to submit COVID-19 policies as rules by Sept. 2.

The committee’s Co-chair Sen. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, said he will ask Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Rochester, and Senate Majority Leader Devin LeMahieu, R-Oostburg, to take legal action against the System after the deadline.

“It is sad that Interim President Tommy Thompson has once again shown his belief in big government control over the rights of individuals to make their own health related decisions,” Nass said in a statement Tuesday.

He accused the System of attempting to “banish” unvaccinated people from campuses despite Thompson’s comments doubling down on his refusal to require immunizations against COVID-19. Nass also said different rules apply to those attending football games, though UW-Madison is requiring masks for attendees while they are indoors.

1. It appears to me that when Nass says "the rights of individuals" what he's

really saying is "FreeDumb". But yes, policy should be clearly stated and available
for review.

2. I can't believe this asshole is still in office.

And I can't believe how much he hates the University of Wisconsin system.
