Spotlight: Evers’ DSPS still a mess

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers’ dysfunctional Department of Safety and Professional Services no longer wants to be bothered with lawmaker emails on behalf of frustrated constituents suffering through long professional license application delays. Instead, the bungling agency has developed a “new tool” requiring lawmakers to become case workers for DSPS.

It’s the latest example of what state Rep. Shae Sortwell (R-Two Rivers) has described as the failings of an “absentee governor” — and untold numbers of Wisconsinites have been hurt because of the administration’s lack of leadership.

In an email to legislators last week, DSPS legislative liaison Michael Tierney advises DSPS is launching a Case Management System for legislative offices to use when “receiving inquiries from constituents regarding licensure, plan review, complaints, or other issues.”
