Tuesday at the Capitol

budget, legislation

A judge issued a restraining order requiring state officials to open the Capitol to the public.

Judge Daniel Moeser said the Capitol must remain open during normal business hours and at the time “governmental matters, such as hearings, listening sessions, or court arguments are being conducted.” People have been camping out in the Capitol since February 14. Police were trying to clear the building for cleaning purposes and to maintain normal business hours.


In other news, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald met with Senate Democrats in Kenosha yesterday. According to the Majority Leader, it is clear many of the Democrats want to come home.


Later today, the Senate will be briefed about Governor Walker’s 2011-2013 budget bill, and the governor will deliver his budget address to a joint session of the legislature.
