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.
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.

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.

(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.
