Editorial: Still loophole in reform
On Nov. 5, an amazing thing happened. Both houses of the state legislature took a stand for a nonpartisan, independent Supreme Court by passing the Impartial Justice bill.
Soon, it became the Impartial Justice Act, as the governor signed it into law, establishing full public financing of state Supreme Court elections.
This is the most significant campaign reform in Wisconsin in 32 years. It was 10 years in the making, as the Impartial Justice bill was proposed in 1999.
