Court Order Ignored - LRB Publishes Anti-Union Legislation

Denver Post Excerpt:
MADISON, Wis.—The Wisconsin law taking away collective bargaining rights that a court had ordered not to be published by the secretary of state has been published instead by the Legislative Reference Bureau. The action was noted on the Legislature's home page Friday. It's not immediately clear whether the publication has the force of law. But if legally published, the law takes effect Saturday.

Channel 3000 Excerpt:
A judge last week issued a temporary restraining order blocking Secretary of State Doug La Follette from publishing the law. But the Reference Bureau said it's required to publish every new law within 10 working days after it's signed by the governor. Gov. Scott Walker signed the collective bargaining measure on March 11. Walker's office says the administration will carry out the law as required.

LaFollette's Letter instructing to remove all reference to March 25, 2011 as the publication date and not to proceed until a new date is set.

Looks to me like yet another overreach by Fitzgerald and his posse.

BTW - just found this blog, and it's in my 'favorites'- great local stuff (from another J'ville guy). I appreciate your efforts!
