Pocan to address National Guard deployments

Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, will join New Jersey State Senator Loretta Weinberg and other state legislative sponsors of a proposal to end National Guard deployments to Iraq at a press conference Monday in Denver.

The event's organizers, the national Bring the Guard Home! campaign, argue that state legislatures must end Guard deployments, which they say are against the law, since Congress has not acted.

Wisconsin is one of 11 states where legislators are working with organizers to develop and pass Guard defederalization legislation.

In addition, Madison attorney and former national Green Party co-chairman Ben Manski will also address the press conferece.
