A new statewide study says Wisconsin is number one...in binge drinking.

A group called 'Health First Wisconsin' reports that the Badger State has a higher rate of excessive drinking than any other state. In La Crosse, Brenda Rooney works with the Changing the Culture of Risky Drinking' group. She finds the financial costs of drinking cited in the report to be a bit disturbing.  The group's study calculated that alcohol problems cost three billion dollars a year in lost productivity at work...two billion in premature deaths...and half-a-billion dollars in traffic accidents.

Same Sex Talks Heating Up

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) In passionate back-and-forth testimony, the debate over same-sex marriage is playing out in a Minnesota Legislature moving toward the first votes on a bill to legalize it.

Supporters and opponents went one-by-one Tuesday before the House Civil Law Committee, which planned to act on the legislation later in the day. A Senate committee also planned a vote. If the bills pass, they'll slip below the radar for weeks as the budget takes centers stage. A final vote on the marriage bills could be months away.

The House panel heard from pastors, doctors, parents, children and couples on both sides of the issue.

Last fall, Minnesota voters rejected a constitutional amendment that would have permanently barred gay marriage. Almost immediately the push to allow same-sex weddings began.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The majority of the outdoor construction on Lambeau Field's new south end zone is done.

Green Bay Packers officials say the $143 million renovation project is on budget and on schedule. Some outside seating work still needs to be done, but crews have largely turned their focus indoors. Doors and counters are done in the new end zone suites. And work is progressing on the new concession stands and premium seating areas.

The project is expected to be done in time for the Packers' popular Family Night scrimmage this summer. Stadium District Board members toured the construction site Monday afternoon.

Public Budget Hearings Coming

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Four public hearings by the Legislature's budget committee are in the works to give people a chance to comment on Gov. Scott Walker's two-year state spending proposal. Dates and places for the hearings before the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee have not yet been set.

The committee plans to begin receiving briefings from state agencies on how the budget affects them starting next week. Once those are done, the Republican-controlled committee will then begin its process of voting on changes to the $68 billion budget. The full Legislature is expected to vote on the budget sometime in June.

Walker's plan includes an income tax cut, an expansion of private school vouchers, a tightening of Medicaid eligibility and a freezing of public school spending.
