GOVERNMENT AND POLITICAL ROUNDUP: Senate approves bill protecting Indian mascots
A bill making it harder to force Wisconsin public schools to drop Indian team names is on its way to Governor Scott Walker. The Republican governor has not said whether he'll sign the measure that got final legislative approval from the Senate yesterday. The vote was 17-to-16, with Richland Center Republican Dale Schultz joining all Democrats in voting no. Democrats said it would institutionalize racism in schools.
