MADISON (WKOW) — An email obtained by WKOW27 News indicates several local officials Monday were assured by Republican lawmakers the state Supreme Court would rule on the contentious collective bargaining case this week.
In a 4-3 decision, state Supreme Court justices Tuesday upheld the collective bargaining bill and vacated a Dane County judge’s restraining order against it.
Four Republican legislators met with Sheboygan County department heads Monday as part of monthly sessions involving state and local officials.
