Judge Says Wisconsin Bargaining Law Not in Effect

Friday, April 1st, 2011 at 5:56 am

A judge’s ruling in Wisconsin has ordered the enactment of the collective bargaining law to be halted. The bill that would strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights is not in effect after a Dane County circuit judge has ordered it to be halted, saying that the law was not properly published and is not in effect.

Governor Scott Walker, at a press conference in Green Bay, says that the administration will comply with the court order. He ultimately believes that the bill will become law.

According to the ruling, the court believes that it is ultimately up to the Secretary of  State to publish the law and to set an effective date.
