GRITtv: The F Word: Stopping Walker’s Steamroller In Wisconsin
The night that the Wisconsin Senate Republicans got together and forced through Scott Walker’s union-busting bill, many Wisconsinites cried foul. The state’s open-meetings law required more notice unless there was a true emergency.
Last week, a Republican-appointed judge ruled with the protesters that the session that passed the bill may have violated the law, which requires 24 hours notice on a vote. Judge Maryann Sumi put a stay on the bill, blocking its implementation. Teachers and other state employees retain their union rights. Distributed by Tubemogul.
