Wisconsin VI: Updates

Even as a layperson not from Wisconsin, I recognized that the passage of the law dismantling collective bargaining for state workers was shady, and if I recall correctly, there were immediate accusations that WI's Open Meetings law had been violated.  Yesterday, a judge agreed.  So, it will be interesting to see how this will affect getting that law passed, since, as it was noted in the article, that that ruling focused on procedure, as opposed the the actual policy.  The WI Republicans are free to essentially do it over again, and making sure that the Open Meetings law is adhered to.  However, considering that three WI Senate districts gained enough legitimate signatures to hold actual recall elections for their Republican state Senators, I am not sure re-opening that fight would be the top priority.
