Is There A Reciprocity Agreement In Place?

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Revenue officials from Minnesota and Wisconsin have settled a key issue to reaching a tax reciprocity agreement. Separate studies by the two states find Wisconsin would owe Minnesota about $69 million to compensate for the tax revenue it would lose if residents who live in one state and work in the other file a single state income tax return.

Revenue officials have been working toward an agreement for several years to restore tax reciprocity. But, another issue remains on the table. Minnesota wants Wisconsin to pay an additional $6 million annually to cover a difference in tax credits that the states offer interstate commuters.

Wisconsin's top revenue official, Roger Chandler, says it's unreasonable for Wisconsin to send Minnesota $6 million to reverse a ``tax increase'' that Minnesota imposed.

86 Year Old Charged With Voter Fraud

Written by

ST. PETER, Minn. (AP) An 86-year-old woman diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and dementia has been charged with voter fraud. Margaret Schneider says she forgot she had voted by absentee ballot in the 2012 primary election and about a month later, on Aug. 14, went to her polling place to vote. Now Schneider finds herself facing a felony charge and a court appearance April 2.

A police report notes the voter roster at Schneider's polling place showed she had already voting absentee, but the election judge didn't stop her from voting again. Schneider says if she's convicted, the election judge should be convicted too for failing to stop her.

Nicollet County Attorney Michelle Zehnder Fischer says that in general, if there's probable cause to show a crime occurred, she has to prosecute.

More On Shooting At Governor Mansion

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Newly released records show the Capitol Police officer who was terminated after firing her gun inside the governor's mansion last October told investigators the gunshot came from outside the building.

Records released at the request of the Wisconsin State Journal show the officer was in the security office in the lower level of the Maple Bluff mansion when her gun was fired. The bullet shot the eye of a cartoon ghost Halloween decoration.

Three police officers responded to the shooting and searched the mansion grounds for an armed intruder. Records also show the officer had not completed her firearms training and that the police department extended her probation period so she could finish it.

The officer's termination letter said she ``intentionally attempted to mislead the department.''

Nine years ago, a La Crosse man dying of cancer was attacked in his home by intruders who wanted to steal his medicine.

The intruders were charged with reckless homicide for hastening the man's death, and one of them...Michael Melby...reached a plea agreement and got 30 years in prison. Melby's term was shortened at a later hearing, but last year he asked for yet another hearing, claiming the judge didn't tell him that other charges might affect his sentence. A state appeals court doesn't buy that argument, and is rejecting Melby's appeal. The appeals judges say the circuit court correctly informed Melby about the charges he faced, and how his sentence might be influenced by them.
