More Budget Talks On The Way

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Republican member of the Legislature's powerful budget-writing committee plans to unveil his proposal for overhauling the state's income tax system while also providing an even deeper tax cut than originally put forward by Gov. Scott Walker.

Rep. Dale Kooyenga of Brookfield plans to release his proposal on Tuesday. It comes as the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee is nearing the end of its work making changes to Walker's budget before it heads to the Senate and Assembly for debate.

Walker in February proposed a $343 million income tax cut.
But Kooyenga has said he wants to increase the cut by another $450 million while also doing away with a number of existing tax credits and reduce the number of tax brackets from five to three.

Tick Season Is Here

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota health officials say the wet weather and anticipated warm-up means outdoor enthusiasts are at high risk for ticks.

State epidemiologist Dave Neitzel says the tick season was delayed by a prolonged winter, but is now upon us. He says ticks are so small they can go unnoticed on people and pets. Neitzel says he was hiking just north of the Twin Cities recently and found some ticks.

The latest data from the Minnesota Department of Health shows nearly 15,000 cases of tick-borne diseases were reported from 1986 to 2010. The majority of the cases were Lyme disease.

UW System Wants Exemptions

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) The University of Wisconsin-Madison wants an exemption from the state's open-records law that would allow it to keep research information private until it's published or patented. The the university is circulating a two-page document among Republican lawmakers suggesting language for a standalone bill.

The university says its proposal was prompted by a change in federal patent law. Patents are now awarded on a first-to-file basis, meaning a rival could use the open-records law to gain early access to UW-Madison research and then try to file a patent first.

But the proposal doesn't sit well with Bill Lueders, who runs the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council. He says current law already allows UW to deny requests if it can cite a legitimate reason.
