Hearing on Wis. union plan finally ends
(AP) – 1 hour ago
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Republicans have called a halt to a marathon public hearing on their plan to strip almost all public workers of their collective bargaining rights.
The hearing in front of the Legislature’s finance committee began around midmorning on Tuesday. Hundreds of public workers lined up to speak in hopes of delaying the committee’s vote on the measure.
The hearing dragged on and on. Dozens of University of Wisconsin-Madison students and teaching assistants put down sleeping bags and blankets and slept in the state Capitol’s rotunda.
Republican House member Robin Vos finally ended the hearing at 3 a.m. Wednesday morning. Democrats said they would continue to listen to workers who still wanted to speak.
The committee is expected to return later in the day to vote.
