Wisconsin Rep. Steve Doyle on using alias emails, running in 2024, spending too much fixing roads and more



FILE - Wisconsin state Assembly Rep. Steve Doyle in the WIZM studio on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2022, for La Crosse Talk PM.

Wisconsin state Assembly Rep. Steve Doyle joined La Crosse Talk PM on Monday to discuss the governor using a fake email, how much is too much to fix La Crosse County roads, whether he’s running again in 2024 — as we make fun of his age multiple times — and the blasphemes question of whether legislators should get a raise.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

We also talked with Doyle, a Democrat out of Onalaska, about the A.I. committee he’s on and some things the state might need to do in various forms of education — in regards to A.I. and “fake news.” 

Began things talking about the holidays and, while Wisconsin doesn’t have a higher minimum wage, should the state make double-time pay mandatory for people who have to work on a holiday, like Thanksgiving. 

From there we talked (7:00) about the county using $14 million next year to “fix the roads,” and whether that’s too much.

After that, we asked if he’s running in 2024 (10:30), before discussing the story that Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers using an alias email to conduct government business (13:05), and if the Legislature should pass some rules against doing that.

Concluded the show talking about my ludicrous idea of giving the state Legislature a pay raise or making it a part-time entity (23:30) and ended things discussing his work on the state A.I. committee, if a 65-year-old is the right man for the job in that regard (32:10) and what kind of education the state might need — with A.I. and fake news.
