TSA Shows Off New Scanner At La Crosse Airport

Written by

The TSA demonstrated new Advanced Imaging Technology at the La Crosse Municipal Airport this morning. AIT safely screens passengers for metallic and nonmetallic threats, including explosives, without physical contact. Millimeter wave technology bounces harmless electromagnetic waves off the body, and the energy emitted is 1000 times less than international limits and guidelines. Carrie Harmon says it's all about privacy.



There are 600 of these new scanners at 140 airports across the country now and Harmon says it was used with two flights at La Crosse this morning.

Constitutional Amendment Push Faces Deadline in Madison

Written by

Lawmakers in Madison might not get around to voting on the pet issue of the state treasurer.  Kurt Schuller wants to eliminate his office and that of the Secretary of State.  He faces a timing challenge; lawmakers have until the end of the current legislative session next month to vote on the constitutional amendment.  But there's also some resistance.  Like from the current Secretary of State, Doug La Follette

 

 

Legislators have to vote for a constitutional amendment in successive sessions before a measure can go to voters for final approval.

Group Says Wetlands Bill Has Potential Negative Impacts

Written by

A new bill headed to governor Walker for a signature is meant to help businesses in the state.  But wetland regulation reforms also pose significant threats to the environment and to flood protection around the state, says Tracy Hames (haims), executive director of the Wisconsin Wetlands Association.   That's because the new rules allow developers to skip the part of the permit process that gets them to look at other areas besides wetlands to build

 

 

Hames says it's silly to think that developers will be able to replace natural wetlands they fill in with ones they build in other areas.

La Crosse County Election Results

Written by

Nearly 900 voters made their way to the polls in La Crosse County for Tuesday's primary...That was a 12 per cent turnout, for an election in which only three county board races were listed on county ballots.  The top vote-getter was former Forest Hills manager Dave Holtze, who received two-thirds of the votes in a three-way race in south La Crosse.  Incumbent Gerald Sebranek only had 13 per cent of the votes in that contest, and so he will lose his board seat.  Supervisor Bill Brockmiller was the only other candidate to get more than 100 votes on Tuesday...winning 50 per cent of the votes against two other contenders.

Wisconsin Election Maps Back In Court

Written by

(AP) Federal judges in Milwaukee are reconvening in a case over whether the state's new election maps are constitutional. The case was delayed Tuesday as lawyers prepared arguments about the degree to which one particular witness might have to testify. Jim Troupis helped produce the maps for Republican lawmakers, and has said much of his involvement is protected by attorney-client privilege. The three-judge panel is expected to make a decision Wednesday. Democrats and an immigrant-rights group want the maps thrown out and redone. However, a separate issue was raised Tuesday over whether state law even allows the issue to be revisited. Republican lawmakers say the law only allows new maps to be drawn once every 10 years, but plaintiffs' attorneys say they just have to be completed in the first legislative session, which is still ongoing.

Senate Passes Abortion Consent Bill

Written by

(AP) The Wisconsin state Senate has passed a bill placing new requirements on doctors and women before abortions can be performed. The Senate passed the bill Wednesday after Democratic opponents blocked a vote on Tuesday. It passed 17-15 on a party line vote. The bill would require doctors be present when prescribing abortion-inducing drugs. It would ban the use of web cams to do that, a practice not currently done in Wisconsin. The measure would also require doctors inform a woman on her right to refuse or consent to an abortion. The doctor would be required to speak to the woman away from any partner or family member. Republican supporters say the bill will protect girls and women from harm. It now heads to the Assembly.
