Doyle Will Make Concessions on Clean Energy
Doyle says the crux of the sweeping measure being debated in the Legislature would require 25 percent of Wisconsin's energy to come from renewable sources by 2025. He says that provision is what's critical to creating new jobs in fields like solar and wind energy.
Doyle told reporters he is open to changes on other details that he didn't specify and that he expects ``significant changes'' as it moves through both houses.
The bill would lift Wisconsin's ban on new nuclear power plants and tighten auto emission standards, among many other things.

The state of Wisconsin appealed the dismissal, and an appeals court agrees that Wall could be brought to trial again in the case.
