A temporary closure of Highway 35 at Genoa today is being postponed until noon.

The road will be closed near the Dairyland power plant, so spent nuclear fuel can be transported to a storage site down the road. The fuel has been kept at the main plant in Genoa since the nuclear reactor there was shut down in 1987, as a cost-cutting measure.

After an overwhelming vote on Tuesday night, it appears the La Crosse City Council will easily authorize a committee study of a budget consultant plan at its meeting on Thursday.

The Committee of the Whole amended the resolution, to remove language committing 125-thousand dollars for a consultant search. Council president Audrey Kader will be on the study committee. She defends much of the spending that city government must do every year.

 

Critics of the consultant plan have speculated that such an expert might be a substitute for the city administrator rejected in an April referendum...or that a consultant would recommend firing Mayor Matt Harter.

Thirty-third time's the charm?

House Republicans have voted for the 33rd time to defeat the 'Obamacare' law since President Obama signed the health care bill over two years ago. Five Democrats joined with the Republicans to oppose Obamacare...but La Crosse's Ron Kind was not one of them. Kind has supported the Obama bill on every one of those House votes, but says some changes could be made.

 

Kind argues that many individual parts of the health care law have gotten broad bi-partisan support.
