Wisconsin Anti-Union Law To Take Effect March 26

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s Secretary of State tells The Associated Press that he has decided not to publish a bill taking away public workers’ collective bargaining rights until the latest day possible.

Secretary of State Doug La Follette said Monday that he decided to publish the law on March 25 in order to give schools and other local governments time to pass contract extensions between now and then.

La Follette says the law will take effect on March 26.

Gov. Scott Walker signed the bill on Friday and had asked La Follette to publish the law, the final step needed in order for it to take effect, on Monday. But La Follette says he saw no emergency that would necessitate him doing that.
