More Lottery Tickets Coming

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) State revenue officials say sales of $30 scratch-off lottery tickets are doing well in other states, so why not add it in Wisconsin?

The Department of Revenue wants to add the ticket after the new fiscal year starts July 1. The department's report to the Legislature's budget committee doesn't say what the payout on a $30 ticket would be, but notes that about 75 percent of sales would go to winners.

The state lottery had a record-setting year ending June 30 with sales of more than $547 million. Sales are projected to decrease slightly in the next fiscal year to about $540 million.

Gun Talks In Minnesota

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk says a proposal to require background checks on all firearm purchases probably lacks support to become Minnesota law. Bakk, a Cook Democrat, said Friday that opposition from Republicans and fellow rural Democrats will make it ``tough to get the votes to pass that.''

Bakk says he supports requiring background checks for firearm purchases at gun shows, but doesn't think the same should be required of personal transfers.

Rep. Michael Paymar, a St. Paul Democrat, has unveiled a bill to reduce gun violence. The bill's background check proposal only exempts relatives from being required to get a permit to transfer weapons. It does not include bans on assault weapons or high-capacity ammunition magazines.

Republicans say his bill won't have the votes to pass.

Wisconsin Budget Battle

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Even with massive federal spending cuts impending, Wisconsin officials say they need to know more before deciding how to deal with it. Gov. Scott Walker's spokesman Cullen Werwie says the state is waiting for more information on the cuts before gauging any actual impact statewide.

White House budget officials say that for Wisconsin, the mandatory cuts could mean fewer meat inspectors, air control towers and military personnel, less environmental protection funding and school aid, among other things.

President Barack Obama blamed Republican lawmakers Friday for failing to stop the automatic spending cuts that are to begin kicking in later in the day, calling the cuts ``dumb, arbitrary.'' Republicans say the fault is Obama's, for insisting that increased taxes be part of the resolution.
