    Collective Bargaining Law Back On The Table in Wisconsin

    Collective Bargaining Law Back On The Table in Wisconsin

    Republicans in Wisconsin are planning to put the collective bargaining provision into the state’s budget legislation, if the Wisconsin does not act soon to revoke Judge Sumi’s ill-advised injunction against the law, as reported by JSOnline:

    The Legislature will put Gov. Scott Walker’s limits on collective bargaining into the state budget Tuesday if the state Supreme Court hasn’t ruled on the matter by then, Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) said Monday.

    “If need be, we are going to have to pass collective bargaining again,” Fitzgerald said at a Capitol news conference. “My caucus is more solid on that collective bargaining vote than they ever have been.”

    Republicans have no choice at this point.  Judge Sumi ran out the clock on them.

    I guess there will be no post-Kloppenburg lull in Wisconsin.

    By the way, it IS possible that SCOWI will rule Sumi's intervention is completely out of order and quash her TRO/injunction.

    But SCOWI will have to act quickly, and the Chief Justice is a Lefty of the first water.

    If there is a more corrupt state court system in the remaining "56" states would someone please acknowledge?

    Anyone, Bueller, Bueller?

    One thing that a gutsy GOP would do (am I kidding myself? Yes, I am) would be to go after Sumi personally. Find out if there is a way to eject her from the bench. Search her prior decisions for any hint of impropriety. Criminalize her actions and use that to eject her from the judiciary.

    But the GOP would prefer to play by kindergarten rules while the Democrats play by the same rules that Stalin preferred.

    Chuck, I think you are 180 degrees out. Adding the collective bargaining back into the budget will likely make the fleebaggers run again.

    A non-budget bill can be passed without dems, since the quorum requirements aren't as tight. They just need to give 24 hour's notice, and survive the gauntlet of protestors to actually vote.
