Law enforcement limiting what can be brought into Capitol

MADISON (WKOW) -- Law enforcement is limiting what can be brought into the Capitol.

Capitol police issued a statement Saturday, saying they would not allow signs on sticks, noise makers, duct tape, tents, sleeping bags and weapons. Officials also said camping was not permitted on Capitol grounds.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported (http://bit.ly/jf4oHj ) a city committee on Friday allowed a request to use downtown streets for a protest village starting Saturday night. It sets the stage for a continuous presence by opponents of Republican Gov. Scott Walker's budget who are expected to erect tents along roads.

Protesters showed up for recent Legislature's Joint Finance Committee hearings and dozens had to be removed.

The committee has completed its work on the budget and the proposal now heads to the full Legislature for its consideration.
