(AP) The plan to help finance a new Minnesota Vikings stadium has at least temporarily stalled at the Capitol, and Gov. Mark Dayton is pressuring key GOP leaders to help keep it moving.
The Senate Local Government and Elections Committee tabled the stadium bill Wednesday even though a vote had been promised. The bill's Senate sponsor says concern about a proposed gambling expansion in the bill had put its passage in question.
The delay is important because Friday is a legislative deadline. If the bill does not pass at least one statehouse committee by then, lawmakers will have to waive that deadline. House Speaker Kurt Zellers would not commit to doing so Wednesday.
Dayton said ``underhanded tactics'' were behind the bill's delay but would not call out culprits by name.
The state Senate has approved a bill designed to reduce concussions in youth sports. And even though several local high schools have tight protocols on how to handle them, MVC Commissioner, Terry Erickson, says schools may be adding to their current programs soon.
The bill would require the state and the WIAA to educate players, coaches and parents about concussions. Athletes who suffer apparent head injuries would have to be removed from practice or games. They would be prohibited from returning until they get a medical examination. The bill awaits a signature from the governor.
A bill passed by the senate and assembly this week, would would change eligibility standards for the scenic byway program to include non state roadways, such as Bliss Road in La Crosse. It was penned by Representative Jill Billings and Senator Jennifer Shilling, both of La Crosse. We asked Billings how she got the bill, which received bi partisan support, to go through.
Currently in Wisconsin, only state or federal roadways are permitted designation, leaving many city, town and county roadways unable to apply for this program. Expanding the program to non state roadways would not only preserve more of Wisconsin’s scenic and historical areas, but allow for additional state and federal funds to help with promotion and upkeep of these local roadways.
Bryan Stanley's future could be decided in the next 30 days...
And that future could mean that Stanley becomes a permanent resident of the Mendota hospital. Stanley...who killed three men at an Onalaska church in 1985...was jailed this week after reporting that he's been feeling anxiety. The district attorney's office has little involvement in the process to decide whether Stanley is recommitted, but D-A Tim Gruenke says he would participate in Stanley's upcoming hearing. Stanley was released from Mendota three years ago...angering families of his victims, because they were not told ahead of time that he would be freed.
(AP) Some of the Minnesota charities that operate pull-tabs and bingo games whose tax proceeds are being eyed to help pay for a new Vikings stadium believe the state's projections of how much money would be raised are too optimistic. The Vikings stadium bill would allow charities to offer new, electronic versions of their pull-tabs and bingo games. The hope is that increases gameplay, and creates a corresponding spike in tax revenue to finance the $400 million state share of a new, billion-dollar stadium in downtown Minneapolis. But some game operators are skeptical of the Dayton administration's projections. The CEO of the Hoffman Senior Citizens Club in that small western Minnesota town says she strongly doubts their gambling profits would more than triple in size, as the state estimates.
(AP) A La Crosse County man imprisoned for keeping his mother's body in a basement freezer and for shooting a neighbor is scheduled to be released from prison in a matter of weeks. The Department of Corrections says that Philip Schuth will move to Eau Claire when he's released from the Columbia Correctional Institution April 16th. Schuth will be under supervision for the next 10 years. Schuth lived with his mother, Edith, on French Island near La Crosse and in 2005 shot and wounded a neighbor who had come onto their property. The shooting led to an all-night standoff before Schuth was arrested. Police then discovered the body of Schuth's mother in a block of ice in the basement. Schuth told police she had died of natural causes in 2000.
(AP) A Wisconsin judge has signed off an agreement that would make May 8 or June 5 the dates for recall elections against Gov. Scott Walker and five other Republicans. Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess gave the agreement an official OK Wednesday. The tentative deal was reached a day earlier by lawyers for the state elections board, recall committees and recall targets. Under the deal, any required primaries would be held May 8 with a general election four weeks later, on June 5. Otherwise a primary election would have been May 1 and the general election May 29, near the Memorial Day holiday. Four Republican state senators face recall elections. It appears nearly certain that Gov. Scott Walker and Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, will also stand for recall.
Over 270 million people combined have tuned in on the internet for the 2nd straight year to watch the Decorah eagles. People like eagles. They are strong, have powerful yellow beaks and are a national treasure. So when Bob Anderson, developer, decided to place a cam in a turkey vultures nest in Missouri....why does he think more people will watch them hatch eggs and raise their young then the eagles?
They won't be around for about a month though....the turkey vultures are still in South America.
