Voucher School Poll Split

Written by

MILWAUKEE (AP) A new poll reveals a clear split in Wisconsin opinions about voucher schools. A Marquette University law school poll on Tuesday said 52 percent of respondents would like to see the voucher program expanded statewide or at least in larger districts with some underperforming schools. And 42 percent want it frozen or ended altogether.

The poll say says 72 percent of Wisconsinites have a favorable view of public education, while 18 percent have an unfavorable view.

When initially asked their thoughts on voucher schools, 49 percent had no opinion. Pollster Charles Franklin says that leaves room for leaders on both sides to shift public opinion.

The poll questioned 1,060 respondents, including one in three from the city of Milwaukee. The margin of error is plus or minus 5 percentage points.

Testy Background Check Debate

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The prospect of requiring background checks for nearly all gun sales in Minnesota is at the center of a fiery debate at the Capitol. The House Public Safety Committee is set to vote later Tuesday on a Democrat's gun bill that currently includes that measure. That vote is a critical test of whether that measure can become law. Republicans say it doesn't have the votes.

Rep. Michael Paymar, a St. Paul Democrat, says expanding background checks is necessary. He has been criticized by Republicans and some rural Democrats, who favor competing legislation backed by gun rights advocates that they say would improve but not expand the current system.

A Senate panel passed a bill with universal background checks last week on a party-line vote, with all Republicans opposed.

Minnesota Turbo Tax Fix

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Minnesota revenue officials say problems with TurboTax and other Intuit tax preparation products have been fixed.

The Department of Revenue said Tuesday Intuit has corrected the errors and taxpayers can continue to use the company's products, which also include Lacerte, Intuit online and ProSeries.

Minnesota first became aware of problems with TurboTax and other Intuit products about three weeks ago when Intuit notified the department that if was holding back about 11,000 returns until the company could adapt the Minnesota tax-return software to recent federal tax law changes.

Revenue officials identified 13 issues with the various software products.

Jackson Co. Driver Facing 13th OWI Charge

Written by

Thirteenth time lucky?

Not for a Black River Falls man, accused of driving drunk for the 13th time. Herman Decorah's car slid into a ditch in Jackson County yesterday. The Ho-Chunk Nation police arrived at the crash scene to find Decorah passed out behind the wheel, with the car still running. Decorah is 59. According to state court records, his 11th OWI conviction happened in 2000 in Sauk County. Decorah's 12th conviction apparently came six years ago in Wood County.
