Hamilton Political Tidbits: May 27, 2016

 

With the halls of the Wisconsin Legislature practically empty, the focus over the past several weeks in Wisconsin has been on several key state and federal judicial actions. Last week, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled 2011 Act 21 unconstitutional in regards to the governor's and his administration's oversight of the state superintendent. In addition, Attorney General Brad Schimel recently released his opinion on the Department of Natural Resource's authority over high capacity well permits. On the federal level, Wisconsin has joined 10 other states suing the Obama administration over guidance that directs schools to allow transgender students to use facilities according to their gender identities. You can read about all this in today's Tidbits.

In state election news, nomination papers are due on June 1, leaving only a small window for candidates to file for the November state elections. This week, Tidbits highlights two seats that are already heating up: Sen. Tom Tiffany's (R-Hazelhurst) district race and the race for Rep. Dave Heaton's (R-Wausau) open seat.

Lastly, as we near the end of the fiscal year, the attention is all on the state's bottom line. Below, you can read about the state's announcement to defer a debt payment, and the Department of Revenue's recent report on state tax collections.
