Budget Talks Heat Up

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Republicans continue to meet behind closed doors to reach deals on the three largest remaining items in the Wisconsin state budget. The Legislature's Joint Finance Committee was scheduled to complete its work on the budget on Tuesday. But three of the biggest items remain unresolved.

Those are public education funding and expansion of the private school voucher program, Medicaid and income taxes. Some details have been made public of deals being discussed among Republicans and Gov. Scott Walker on each of those topics.

But lawmakers are also awaiting more information from the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau which could either speed any compromise or derail progress. Talks were expected to be ongoing all day Monday. Democrats also scheduled a Monday news conference to offer their own alternatives.

Minnesota Law Could Be Challenged

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Legislature passed up a chance this session to rework Minnesota's sex offender program, raising the possibility that a federal judge will rule it unconstitutional.

The program is meant to provide treatment, but it has released only one of about 700 people who are being indefinitely detained. The program costs the state $326 a day to hold and treat each offender, triple the average cost of keeping an offender in prison. The U.S. District Court for Minnesota is considering a class-action lawsuit challenging the program's constitutionality.

The court could leave the program as is or order changes, possibly under ongoing court oversight. The state could try to address some of the concerns on its own. Or the plaintiffs could reach a settlement with the state.

Bully Fines

Written by

MONONA, Wis. (AP) Parents of children who bully may be ticketed by police and fined in municipal court under a new local law in Monona.

Police Chief Wally Ostrenga says he expects the ordinance will be used sparingly and only in cases where parents are uncooperative. Ostrenga says sometimes parents don't want to talk to police because they may think their children can do no wrong.

The chief says parents who make a good-faith effort to address their child's behavior would not be ticketed. The first violation of the `parent liability' ordinance carries a $114 fine.
