Judge Blocks the WI Collective Bargaining Law.


The first round of Democrat push back on Wisconsin’s new collective bargaining law has succeeded. A Judge has blocked the Secretary of State from publishing the new law on the grounds that the law wasn’t passed within the guidelines of the Open Meetings Act. This is essentially an appeal to a technicality.

I don’t know enough about the process by which the law was originally passed or Wisconsin’s Open Meetings Act to know if this attack has any merits. If it does, since this is a technicality rather than a fundamental problem with the law, this is at worst a delay in implementation. The WI legislature can simply pass the same law using whatever process the judge says must be followed and then implement it.

  1. From what I hear this is a technicality without substance, the rule in question is the amount of notice required before a vote, but does not apply to ‘special sessions’ of which this was one.

  2. The Unions/Democrats have been saying that all along. According to Gov. Walker, the R’s had their lawyers make sure it was done according to the rules. I read something today about the Judge being very Liberal, and that she doesn’t rule on the merits of the case but rather as a partisan.

  3. This should not be a problem, several ways to skin this cat. But Walker should emphasize putting extra cash in the hands of teachers (no more withholding for union dues) which will make a lot of them think twice. The ones who are teaching their kids the Obama chant? They should be targeted for “early release.” Let them take their act to Mississippi for $50K /yr less.
