State Senator Joe Leibham to not seek recount for last week's election

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Joe Leibham will not seek a recount for last week's 6th House District Republican primary.

Walker's Collective Bargaining Limits in Supreme Court

MADISON, Wis. (WHBL) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court will hear arguments this morning on whether the state’s new collective bargaining limits should take effect. The Justice Department asked the state’s highest court to take the case before Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi declared the law void a few days ago. The judge said Republican legislators broke the state Open Meetings Law when they passed the bargaining limits for public unions in March. Dane County’s chief prosecutor took the case to court, and Sumi blocked the law’s adoption until she could decide the matter. Republicans contend that Sumi had no authority to block the union law, and the lawmakers could not be punished because they have legislative immunity until the ends of their terms. Governor Scott Walker signed the law in early April, and it was in effect for a few days until Judge Sumi blocked it. It requires state employees to pay more toward their pensions and health insurance. And it limits collective bargaining to wages at-or-below inflation.
