Dane County District Judge Maryann Sumi granted the restraining order in response to a lawsuit filed by the district attorney alleging that Republican lawmakers violated the state’s open meetings law by hastily convening a special committee before the Senate passed the bill.  Sumi said her ruling would not prevent the Legislature from reconvening the committee with proper notice and passing the bill again.

Democrats are hoping to gain concessions from the delay and possible need to vote on the bill a second time.  Not sure why they think that would work.  Legislatures with sufficiently large majorities and an executive of the same party have little to no reason to accept an invitation to soften their position.

Wisconsin Democrats to Return Soon

Filed under: Wisconsin 14,Wisconsin Budget Crisis — Tags: , — Obtuse Observer @ 12:35 pm

WSJ.com reports that the fourteen democratic senators who left the state will soon return.

From the article:

Playing a game of political chicken, Democratic senators who fled Wisconsin to stymie restrictions on public-employee unions said Sunday they planned to come back from exile soon, betting that even though their return will allow the bill to pass, the curbs are so unpopular they’ll taint the state’s Republican governor and legislators.

The Republicans rejected the idea that the legislation would hurt the GOP. “If you think this is a bad bill for Republicans, why didn’t you stand up in the chamber and debate us about it three weeks ago?” said Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald. “People think it’s absolutely ridiculous that these 14 senators have not been in Wisconsin for three weeks.”

Who can say how the political winds will blow.  However, we can hope they can now get on with the business at hand.
