Secretary of state will not publish collective bargaining law Monday


MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Secretary of State Doug La Follette says he will not publish the collective bargaining plan in the state's official newspaper Monday, despite a request from Governor Walker.

The bill doesn't go into effect until it's published in the official newspaper.

La Follette says bills are usually published ten business days after they're signed by the Governor: that would be March 25th.

He says some bills were published sooner than that in the past in emergency situations, but says this isn't an emergency.

La Follette says he's still not sure when he'll publish it, saying he's listening to what the people of Wisconsin are saying, and so far he's heard people need some time to digest it.
