Officials in Gov. Walker's administration say law implementation put on hold


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Two officials in Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's administration say preparations to implement the state's divisive collective bargaining law have been put on hold.

The officials spoke to The Associated Press on Thursday on the condition of anonymity because the governor hadn't publicly announced his plans. Walker planned to announce his plans on Thursday.

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi declared earlier Thursday that the law had not taken effect. Republican leaders contended that it had because a state office published the law online on Friday.
