Act 10 in the Courts

Act 10 in the Courts

The future of Wisconsin’s law that recalibrated how local taxpayers paid for public school unions is in limbo.

A judge in Dane County yesterday struck down parts of Act 10. The judge said there’s no rational explanation as to why some police officers in the state were exempted from the law that had some public employees pay more for their retirements and healthcare, and some were not. The judge said that putting UW police officers in a different category as state troopers violates Wisconsin’s equal protection guarantee. Republicans lawmakers yesterday slammed the ruling, accusing the judge of trying to legislate from the bench.
