Tom Barrett's people call it a 'political stunt'...

 

They're responding to a letter from Republican leaders, calling on Barrett to reveal his own economic plan for Wisconsin before the recall election against Governor Walker in June. Assemblyman Robin Vos claims he's only heard one specific idea so far from Barrett, to increase wind energy.  Vos says the media should demand answers from Barrett, so the Milwaukee mayor doesn't campaign on 'lies' and accusations against Walker.

Kind Upset At PSC Ruling

Written by

Following the decision made by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission today to move forward with plans on the CapX2020 high voltage transmission line, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind expressed his disappointment in the process and is encouraging people who may potentially be impacted by Badger Coulee line to make their voices heard.

In a statement, Kind says for years now, he has heard concerns from land owners regarding the proposed lines and he's concerned too. Kind says the process has been confusing and the decision making secretive and he's disappointed in the way this decision was made.

Kind is encouraging people who are concerned to make their voices heard by contacting both the Public Service Commission and the American Transmission Company, who is behind the power line plan that would go from la Crosse to Madison, and by participating in upcoming public forums on the topic.

PSC Approves Portion Of CAPX 2020 Project

Written by
One ruling is in for the CAPX 2020 project. The three commissioners of the public service commission this morning decided the 345 thousand volt project is needed to meet local demand in the La Crosse area as well as to provide regional benefits including the abiity to transfer more electricity on the bulk power system. The big question was where should the lines go. Chairman, Phil Montgomery.



The commission selected a path for the line from Alma to Galesville, but amended the route slightly in the area of the community of Holmen to reduce the number of properties that would have to be crossed. The project is expected to cost at least $202.7 million, though the final cost will be updated after the utilities take into account the route modifications chosen by the commission.

Stanley Goes Back To Hospital

Written by

Bryan Stanley will be back at Mendota for a while...

La Crosse County Judge Ramona Gonzalez has revoked the conditional release of the man who killed three persons at a Catholic Church in Onalaska in 1985.  The state ordered Stanley to be released in 2009, but he admitted recently that he had experienced 'anxiety.'  During a court hearing on Wednesday, witnesses testified that Stanley had violent thoughts about others, including his sister-in-law.  Gonzalez ruled that Stanley violated terms of his release by not telling doctors about those thoughts as soon as they happened.

New Tax Policy In Minnesota

Written by

(AP) A conference committee has finalized a new tax policy bill with breaks for businesses, but less than they would have gotten in a tax bill vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton last week. The bill headed for a House floor vote Wednesday would cost the state about $46 million over the next year, but after that, only about half of what the vetoed bill would have cost. The bill would also draw less from the state's budget reserves than the previous bill. It includes a one-year property tax freeze for businesses and tax credits meant to encourage research and investment in start-up businesses. Some small businesses would get an upfront sales tax exemption for buying equipment but not as many as in the vetoed bill.

Bullying Led To Suicide

Written by
(AP) Authorities say they won't file charges in the suicide of a 13-year-old girl in southeastern Minnesota whose parents say she was bullied. The Dodge County sheriff's office says ``harassment and bullying were likely factors'' in the death of 13-year-old Rachel Ehmke of rural Mantorville last month. But the sheriff's office says in a statement that investigators found no specific incident or action by any particular student they believe is responsible for her death. And because of that, the county attorney's office has decided there's insufficient evidence to charge anyone. The sheriff's office says investigators also determined it was Rachel who sent a derogatory text message about herself to several students at Kasson-Mantorville Middle School two days before her death. The girl's parents did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment.

Walker Says Yes To 2 Debates

Written by
(AP) Gov. Scott Walker says he will participate in two debates before the June 5 recall election even though his Democratic rival Tom Barrett wants him to do four. Walker said Wednesday he would participate in televised debates on May 25 and May 31. The first is sponsored by The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association and the second will be hosted by Mike Gousha from WISN-TV in partnership with the Marquette University Law School, Wispolitics.com, and the WISN network of affiliates. Walker's campaign spokesman Ciara Matthews says the governor looks forward to the debates and having a ``robust'' discussion contrasting his record with Barrett. Barrett had asked Walker to hold four debates all focused on the issue of jobs. A spokeswoman for Barrett's campaign had no immediate response.
