Wood, which alleges the following:
    -Rep. Wood's conduct "jeopardized his life and the lives of innocent citizens, does not reflect the norms or behavior expected of a member of the Assembly and, therefore, has brought disrepute on the Wisconsin State Assembly by damaging the institution's integrity with the public"; and -Rep. Wood's attempts to "deal with his addiction were not successful in preventing the dangerous incidents cited in this resolution."
