WISCONSIN NEWS ROUND-UP: Federal appeals court upholds Act 10
MADISON - Governor Scott Walker’s public union restrictions have been upheld by a federal appeals court ruling.
Public workers from Dane County and the City of Madison filed a lawsuit in 2011, claiming the law violated their rights. The law stripped public workers of collective bargaining rights. Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen says the ruling is a victory for taxpayers, while opponents are calling it unjust.
