Secrecy Shrouds Budget Talks

Written by

Supposed to be final details of a two year budget deal for Wisconsin getting hammered out in Madison today.  Which would be fine, says Jay Heck, from Wisconsin Common Cause; if there wasn't so much secrecy in the process leading up to the final version.  But it's all secret, he says; everything done behind closed doors and mostly with Republicans calling the shots. 

 

Republicans did announce a deal earlier this week that will leave a new Milwaukee Bucks arena and changes to the state's prevailing wage laws out of the new two-year spending plan.   

Comment

A Tomah man arrested last year for his fourth drunk-driving charge is trying to get the state to nullify his first OWI, from more than 20 years ago.  But an appeals court says John Navrestad did not make a convincing case for dropping the 1992 charge.  Navrestad says his very first arrest should not count on his record, because the court mistakenly did not count it after his second arrest.  His most recent OWI case in Monroe County has not concluded yet.

President Visit to La Crosse Partially a Payback

Written by

The last 10 days have been pretty good for President Obama...with Supreme Court rulings in his favor, and passage of new trade rules.  Pundits are saying that Obama's trip to La Crosse today is sort of a 'victory lap' for him.  We spoke this morning with White House press secretary Josh Earnest, who says that sometimes, different things that have been in the works for years can reach a peak at the same time.  

 

Earnest says the La Crosse trip for Obama is partly a thank-you to Congressman Ron Kind for his help in passing fast-track trade legislation.

Chart to Layoff More

Written by
More layoffs for a La Crosse company that only recently went through a massive expansion.  Chart Industries in La Crosse plans another 45 layoffs because of declining business.  The company layed off 50 in April and another 55 in December not long after completing a $50 million plant expansion in La Crosse.

Education Budgets Flat, Group Complains

Written by
According to an analysis by the nonpartisan Wisconsin Budget Project, Governor Scott Walker and the Republican led legislature have proposed a budget that doesn't provide much in the way of new resources for the state's public schools.

Tamarine Cornelius, with the organization, says what's really happening is the additional funds for public education promised in the budget will be delivered in a way that won't allow district to put that money to work educating public school students.
 
 
 

 

Cornelius says the complexities of the school funding system in Wisconsin make it difficult for the average person to understand, but according to her, Governor Walker actually is giving the money as a tax cut.

College Ready for Presidential Visit

Written by
History will be made today as President Barack Obama pays a visit to UW-L.........a first ever by a sitting president. And though the speaking event was supposed to take place last week, UW-L Chancellor Joe Gow says he still had to be hush hush when the event was rescheduled. And since UW-L has hosted prominent figures in the past..........the white house felt safe having Barack Obama there today.
 
 

 

If you weren't one of the few thousand that got a ticket for today's event or your just unable to attend, you can listen to the broadcast live on 1410 WIZM-AM. It is scheduled to begin at 1:20. It  also will be available as a stream on the WIZM website, 1410wizm.com.

Court: More Evidence Needed in Child Death

Written by

More evidence from the state crime lab may be needed before any decisions are made on a trial in a La Crosse County child abuse case.  An August 10th hearing has been scheduled now for Jaymie Rundle of Holmen.  Rundle and her boyfriend are accused of physically abusing the man's three-year-old daughter to the point where she died late last year.  Examinations of the girl's body indicate repeated signs of physical injuries, excessive salt consumption, and extreme starvation.  The girl's father, Dylan Bartsh, already is scheduled for trial next month.

Kind: Boost Overtime, Boost Economy

Written by

A plan to allow more Americans to be paid for overtime may be the centerpiece of President Obama's speech, when he comes to U-W-L today.  The Obama visit has been advertised as dealing with the economy.  Congressman Ron Kind says the economy could be helped by an expansion of overtime pay.

Kind says Congress should schedule a vote on the overtime proposal, rather than leaving Obama to take credit or blame for it.

Segway Vote to Bring New Wheels to City Hall

Written by

Don't be surprised to see La Crosse police riding around on their own Segway scooters soon.  A city council committee tonight considers buying three of the scooters that were just the subject of intense scrutiny in city hall this spring.  Two of the new Segways will be used by police and one by the city's public works department.  It was the city's police chief earlier this year who opposed Segways being used either on streets or the sidewalks in downtown La Crosse.  The three Segways will cost the city close to 24 thousand dollars.
