Madison stops buffer zone enforcement

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison will stop enforcing an ordinance that creates a 100-foot protest-free zone outside of health care facilities.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the city attorney says a U.S. Supreme Court ruling striking down a similar rule in Massachusetts brings up significant concerns about Madison's regulation.

The city will still enforce part of the ordinance that prevents people from getting in the way of others trying to get into health facilities.
