New Ideas for Lieutenant Governor Catching On
Right now, Wisconsin's lieutenant governor isn't asked to do much. More than one candidate for the job this year is campaigning on the idea of changing that. Republican Brett Davis is one of those. He's looking at turning the job into the top taxpayer watchdog for the state. For good reason, he says; people in the state are taxed too much because of wasteful spending.
Another lieutenant governor candidate, Rebecca Kleefisch, wants to use the office to create a taxpayer waste tip line
Doyle Signs Healthy Youth Act
Gov. Jim Doyle has signed a law that will require Wisconsin schools to teach about birth control as part of comprehensive sex education classes.
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.
