Harter Not a Fan of Walker Residency Proposal
One of governor Walker's budget proposals could lead to mass evacuations from some cities in Wisconsin. Walker wants to get rid of residency requirements that some cities--like Milwaukee and La Crosse--use to keep employees living where they work. La Crosse mayor Matt Harter says the residency rule is important for the city's neighborhoods
Currently in La Crosse, union employees have to live in the city for their first three years on the job. Non-union employees hired after August of 2011 must live in the city for good. And department heads must also live in the city.
