Doyle Signs Healthy Youth Act
The law allows school boards to continue deciding whether to offer courses on human development and sex education. But those that do will be required to address the benefits, side effects, and proper use of contraceptives and several other topics.
Doyle says the law is a statement that Wisconsin ``isn't going to put blinders on or plug our ears'' when it comes to the difficult topic of teenagers and sexual activity.
He says the law will make sure students are given the medically accurate information they need to make smart decisions. He and other supporters say the goal is to reduce teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

Doyle Will Make Concessions on Clean Energy
Gov. Jim Doyle says he's open to approving a scaled-back clean energy bill as long as a key provision setting new renewable energy standards remains in tact.
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.
