Governor Scott Walker and the Republicans have won a major victory today! The WI Supreme Court says Walker's union rights law can go into effect.
This is the law that eliminates most of public employees' collective bargaining rights and forces them to pay more for their health and pension benefits.
It's the law that passed while tens of thousands of union protesters stormed and damaged the state Capitol. It's the reason that WEAC's WI Mafia (teacher's union) continues to camp out at the Capital.
The law has been tied up in the courts since a Democrat filed a lawsuit accusing Republicans of violating the state open meetings law during the run-up to passage. Liberal Judge Sumi agreed with the Democrat (no surprise).
But now the Wisconsin Supreme Court has said the judge had no authority to interfere with the legislative process. Hopefully this will be the end of it - but I doubt it.
