Wis. official says Capitol could open up in future

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Department of Administration says it plans to open up the state Capitol in the near future.

As part of a deposition, DOA Secretary Mike Huebsch said all eight doors could be reopened after they get a report on capitol security. Huebsch also said they intend to dial down the need for metal detectors.

No firm date was given in the filing.

Huebsch previously said tightened security would likely remain in place until debate on a controversial anti-union bill has ended. The Wisconsin State Employees Union Council is currently suing Huebsch, saying he ignored a court order to reopen the Capitol to pre-protest levels.
