Twenty-six states, including Wisconsin, went to court to say individuals cannot be forced to have insurance, a product they may neither want nor need. And they argued that if that provision is unconstitutional, the entire law must go. Well the law stays for now according to the Surpreme Court, In Wisconins, Governor Scott Walker, has vowed not to implement it until after the November elections. The governor hopes the next president and Congress will repeal the law. Not good enough says Erpenbach.

Critics say the provision gives the government too much power over what they say should be a personal economic decision.

Billings Named To Special Training Program

Written by

La Crosse state lawmaker, Jill Billings, has been chosen as an up-and-coming leader by her peers to participate in a training program designed to further develop leadership skills, and
analyze a variety of public policy issues, including the economy, economic development and corrections. Billings says not a lot of people are selected for the training.

Since 1995 more than 575 lawmakers have graduated from the Bowhay Institute, including Senator Jennifer Shilling, who attended in 2001.

Wisconsin certainly did have job growth last year.  It was just pretty anemic.  That's the evaluation of the feds this week in revised job totals.  Real numbers on job growth show the state adding 20 thousand jobs last year.  One of the worst rates in the nation.  High time for governor Walker to call a special jobs session for the legislature, says Onalaska state rep, Steve Doyle.

 

 

Initial estimates had pegged Wisconsin with thirty thousand jobs losses until the feds revised those estimates sharply upward.

Throughout the Eric Koula murder trial in La Crosse, the defense argued that unknown professional killers might have shot Eric's parents two years ago.

 

Defense witnesses talked about suspicious people watching the neighborhood where Dennis and Merna Koula lived. Now that Eric Koula has been convicted of murdering his parents, La Crosse County Sheriff Steve Helgeson believes that the neighborhood may be a little more at ease. The sheriff realizes that those neighbors were quite worried in the weeks following the double murder.

 

Eric Koula was arrested eight weeks after the shootings, and was convicted in court this week. Helgeson describes the investigation leading to the arrest as 'remarkably quick.'

You could start paying for some parking spaces in La Crosse's downtown ramps before the end of the year.

The city's Parking Utility Board is still studying gate systems, that would require drivers to pay 50 cents an hour to park in reserved sections of the ramps. Bob Haines with the city Public Works department is looking at how other cities the size of La Crosse charge for parking in ramps:

 

Haines says his department is now working on connecting all the ramps to City Hall through fiber optic cable...to provide security video, and to remotely operate those traffic gates.

Lucky Lottery Store Closing

Written by

(AP) A convenience store in Fond du Lac that became a destination for lottery players because of its winning streak is closing. Ma & Pa's Grocery Express has been a longtime cornerstone of the city's so-called `miracle mile.' Since 1994, the store has sold more than 20 big winning lottery tickets. Miracle mile earned its moniker after four multi-million dollar winning tickets were sold between 1990 and 1994 with a payout of about $160 million. But even lottery sales weren't enough to keep Ma & Pa's open. Owner Mitch Miles says he has struggled to compete on gas prices, eventually losing $900 a day on gas sales.

Official Governor Recall Numbers Released

Written by

(AP) Final results show nearly 58 percent of voting-age adults turned out for Wisconsin's historic recall election. That's easily the highest turnout in more than 60 years for a nonpresidential ballot in Wisconsin. In some parts of the state, turnout was far higher and it approached presidential levels in a few communities. A total of 2,516,065 votes were cast in the June 5 recall. According to the now official tally released Wednesday, Republican Gov. Scott Walker got 53.08 percent or 1,335,585 votes and Democrat Tom Barrett got 46.28 percent, or 1,164,480 votes. The Government Accountability Board had predicted that up to 65 percent of eligible voters would go to the polls.
