Today, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a non-partisan government
watchdog group, asked the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board to investigate whether
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker violated state law by sending the Wisconsin State Patrol (WSP) to
the home of Democratic Senate Leader Matt Miller ...
"Governor Walker has many tools at his disposal to fight the state's public employees, but using
troopers to track down a political opponent crosses the line," said CREW Executive Director Melanie
Sloan. Sloan continued, "The governor's conduct is especially egregious in light of a Wisconsin law
specifically barrlnq troopers from taking part in any dispute between an employer and employee
over wages, hours, labor, or working conditions -- the subject of the governor's bill."

CREW also notes that it was Republican Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald who made the
initial request for the trooper's involvement, and that the Wisconsin State Patrol (WSP) happens to
be headed by Fitzgerald's father ... who became WSP's superintendent on the same day Walker
introduced his union-busting bill.

How handy.

. -- The Assembly could be in for another long night.

So far, the Assembly has worked through only a couple dozen amendments in the 30-plus
hours since the floor session began yesterday. Oems say they have a hundred more, and an
attempt between the GOP leaders and Oems to reach a compromise on an end time for the
session fizzled.

Republicans have successfully shelved each proposed Oem change, including one this
afternoon to wipe out a provision to sell state-run power plants in a no-bid process.

Oems tried to tie the provision to the Gov. Scott Walker's alleged links to the Koch brothers.

"Something doesn't smell right," Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, said.

But Rep. Robin Vos.said if the Oems are going to make allegations, they should offer proof. He
pointed to a statement from Koch Industries earlier this week saying the corporation has no
.interest in acquiring state-owned power plants.

"There is no conspiracy," Vos, R-Rochester, said.

Follow developments in the Budget Blog:

http://budget.wispolitics.com/

-- Walker said today there is "absolutely nothing" to the suggestion he's proposing the
sale of state-owned power plants as payback to campaign contributors.

Questions about Walker's alleged ties to brothers David and Charles Koch intensified today
after the guv was recorded in a prank call speaking with someone he thought was David Koch.

Koch Industries, which has holdings in Wisconsin that include Georgia-Pacific paper mills in
Green Bay, donated $43,000 to Walker's campaign through its PAC, and some are now raising
questions if the energy company could benefit from a provision in the budqet repair bill
allowing the sale.of state-owned power plants without soliciting competitive bids.

4/12/2011
Page 2 of8

Walker told reporters the idea was originally proposed by his former Assembly GOP colleague
Mark Duff and promised an open process on any sale.

"We're only going to move forward on this if it's good for the taxpayer and good for the
ratepayers in the state," Walker said.

Koch Industries also issued a statement yesterday saying it had no interest in purchasing any
state-owned plans in Wisconsin. . .

See the Koch statement:


http://www.wispolitics.com/index.iml?Article=227813

-- The guv also addressed questions over the prank call.

On the recording, the guv can be heard saying he has considered bringing in agitators to rile
up protesters. But Walker said the tape clearly shows he rejected that option and said it was
one of many ideas that have been suggested to him by staff, lawmakers and residents around
the state.

"The thing I said are things I've said publicly all along," he said.

-- Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said today he's never discussed with the guv'
the possibility of trying to dupe Oems to return to the Capitol under the guise of
negotiations. .

During a prank call with someone posing to be conservative businessman David Koch, Walker
says he thought about trying to trick Senate Oems to return to the Capitol. He also said he
considered planting agitators among protesters in the Capitol to stir up trouble.

"I've never spoken with the governor about that," Fitzgerald told reporters today when asked
about reports on the call.

-- Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, also dismissed a proposal from Sen. Dale Schultz to amend the
guv's budget repair bill to sunset some provisions as nothing more than political cover
. for back home. . .

Fitzgerald said Schultz, R-Richland Center, wasn't necessarily being disingenuous. But he
suggested some times conversations people have in the caucus are different from those they
have with people in the district.

4/12/2011
Page 3 of8

"He's in a tough spot," Fitzgerald said.

Fitzgerald acknowledged some members would like another option than what's before them.
But he insisted they were "rock solid" in their support for the bill and said he expected Schultz
would join his Republican colleagues in voting for passage when the bill comes to a final vote.

The GOP controls the chamber, 19-14, so Schultz and two other Republicans would have to
join Dems in a compromise vote.

Listen to Fitzgerald's Q&A:


http://www.wispolitics.com/1006/110223SFitzgerald.mp3

-- The Senate quickly finished its calendar today, voting 19-0 to repeal requirements that
law enforcement collect racial data from traffic stops and unanimously supporting a
resolution praising the Wisconsin Badgers football team.

-- Fitzgerald announced this afternoon that Senate Republicans will no-longer recognize
absent Oems who call in to participate in committee hearings.

Fitzgerald made the announcement after Senate Org approved scheduling voter ID for a vote
tomorrow and dipped the bill in Finance.

-- The Joint Committee on Legislative Organization chairs have sent a ballot to


members asking them to sign off on a policy that would prohibit anyone other than
legislators or their staff from being in a legislative office or hearing room between the
hours of 6 p.m, and 8 a.m.

Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, a member of the committee, brought the ballot up on
the floor of the Assembly and asked the GOP leadership Why it's being proposed. There hadn't
yet been an answer to his question. It would take effect Feb. 26.

-- A D.C.-based watchdog group has requested that the Government Accountability


Board investigate whether Walker broke state laws by sending state troopers to look for

absent Democratic senators.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington says Wisconsin law prohibits "troopers
from taking part in any dispute between an employer and employee over wages, hours, labor,
or working conditions -- the subject of the governor's bill."

The group also referenced.the.recent appointment of Stephen Fitzgerald, the father.of GOP
. legislative leaders Scott Fitzgerald and Jeff Fitzgerald, to head the Wisconsin State Patrol.

"Superintendent Fitzgerald should be devoting his time to the WSP's stated mission enforcing
traffic laws, helping motorists in need, inspecting trucks, school buses and ambulances and
assisting local law enforcement agencies with natural disasters and civil disturbances, not
illegally. intervening..indisputes at.his.son's behest," said CREW Executive Director Melanie
Sloan in a statement. "Would Sen. Fitzgerald have had the nerve to suggest the WSP get
a
involved if his father wasn't running the agency? And wouldn't more independent
superintendent have refused the request?" .'

--Gov. Scott Walker and Congo Paul Ryan received a warm reception at today's Business
Day in Madison event at the Monona Terrace convention center.

In his speech, Walker touted the budget repair bill measure that allows union members to
withhold dues.

The guv said "we give them the true freedom of choice ... to decide whether or not they want
those union dues automatically deducted from their payroll, which in many cases is up to a
$1,000 a year, that instead they can keep in their pockets."

'S'ubject: (WisP6lilics)AdVisory -- Walker defends comments in prank call -- 23 Feb. 2011

WisPolitics Advisory
23 Feb. 2011

Exclusively for WisPolitics Platinum Subscribers

From WisPo/itics.com ...

-- Governor Scott Walker today defended his comments during 'a prank call suggesting
he had considered bringing in agitators and tricking Senate Democrats into coming
back to the Capitol.

Walker insisted that the recording of the call made clear he had rejected any suggestions of
bringing in plants to incite protesters. He also said there is nothing dishonest in his attempts to
bring Oems back to the Senate following their boycott of the budget repair bill vote, adding
there's nothing he has said in private that he hasn't discussed in public.

Walker also for the first time said his austerity measures of public employees would save local
governments more money than he plans to cut in his state budget, which is scheduled be
'introduced next week. Walker pegged those savings to locals at $1.44 billion and another $300
million for the state.

Walker's press conference took an odd twist when state Rep. Brett Hulsey, O-Madison, took
the podium after the guv ended his news conference to address the throng of reporters that
had gathered. Walker's staff opened the conference room doors to allow the noise of
protesters into the room, partially drowning out Hulsey as he declared that the governor was
acting "as a dictator."

Governor Walker's Budget Repair Bill Would Save local Governments Over
$700 Million Every Year

Madison - Governor Scott Walker announced today that his budget repair bill would save local
governments and school districts at least $724 million dollars annually ($1.44 billion over the
biennium).

"Our budget repair bill will save local governments and school districts hundreds of millions of dollars
enabling them to maintain services even as the state grapples with a $3.6 billion deficit," said Governor
Scott Walker. "These savings, in addition to the savings that local governments can realize through
collective bargaining reform, are a vital part of our budget repair bill. The Senate Democrats need to
come do their jobs so we can lock in savings at the local level.and avoid thousands of layoffs."

Under the Governor's budget repair bill, school districts would save $488 million ($976 million over the
biennium). Municipalitieswouldsave'$9Rmillion ($196 million. over- the.blennlumj-Countles.would
save $64million ($128 million over the biennium). Technical colleges would save $58 million ($116
million over the biennium). Special districts would save $15.5 million ($31 million over the biennium).

On top of these savings reforming collective bargaining would allow governments to realize additional
savings. For example, currently many school districts participate in WEA trust because WEAC
collectively bargains to get as many school districts across the state to participate in this union run
health insurance plan as possible. Union leadership benefits from members participating in this plan.
If school districts enrolled in the state employee healthplan;itwould save school districts upto $68
million per year.

In Milwaukee County alone, because the union collectively bargained for paid time off, fourteen
employees receive salary and benefits for doing union business. Ofthe fourteen" three are on full-time
release for union business. Milwaukee County spent over $170,000 in salary alone for these
employees to only participate in union activities such as collective bargaining. The budget repair bill
reforms would help counties, like Milwaukee County, save on these costs.

Racine Journal Times: Time to come home


Senate Democrats have made the point. Now it's time for them to go back to Madison.

We stiil disagree with the union-breaking provisions in Walker's budget repairbiil, but there are other issues to be dealt
with, and the union issue is not one which will be settled here and now. It will linger and may be settled in next year's
elections, or perhaps the elections after that. In the meantime, there are other important issues, such as the voter ID bill.
Republicans hold a majority in the Legislature, so any bill that does not require a special majority -like the budget repair bill
- is fair game. By staying away, Democrats are losing the ability to affect the process, which is what their constituents
expect.

Yes, Democrats may be overridden. by that majority, but that is not guaranteed..Legislatures.and.the.partles in them are not
monolithic. Parties stand together on major issues, but on less publicized and sometimes very important smaller matters,
there is room for negotiation among the various viewpoints represented between and within parties.

Another reason for Democrats to return is the Friday deadline for refinancing the state's debt. That will save about $16S
million, and it is the primary method Walker would use to fill a hole in the current budget. It is possible the state could
renegotiate with lenders and secure the same savings a month from now, but it is also possible that the state will save less
because of lender nervousness and interest rateflurtuations. That would mean a few more layoffs and cuts.

Democrats need to ask themselves a key question: Is Walker likely to buckle? The answer is a simple no. Reducing or
eliminating union influence seems to be part of his ideology and the ideology of the Legislature's Republican leadership.
Combine that with a character which does not seem very pliable, and the probable result is that Walker will do whatever is
necessary to accomplish his goal.

The walkout by one side in the Legislature is hardly the first in history. There was, for example, the 2003 escape of
Democratic Texas legislators to Oklahoma in order to stall a Republican reapportionment plan created to cement long-term
political power. Eventually the Democrats returned, the plan passed, and was modified in court.
As we said, this issue is not over and-will-net be over probably-fen a,long·time,becausecitis·aboutmorecthan just labor. It is
also about the economy, the state of the middle class, local taxation, local services, paying the bills and the role of
government. This is a battle, maybe just a skirmish. It is not the war, and none ofthose aforementioned issues wiil be
solved from an undisclosed location in Illinois.

rntstakes of his predecessor in punting the problem Into the future.

As a standoff with Senate Oems finished its sixth day, Waiker also warned of dire consequences
if action isn't taken soon on his budget repair bill, including layoffs. '

"What we need now more than ever, is a commitment to the future," Waiker said in what he billed
as a fireside chat with Wisconsin citizens broadcast live on statewide TV.

Walker is to speak later this afternoon at WMC's annual Business Day in Madison at the Monona
Terrace convention center.

See Waiker's prepared remarks:


http://www.wispolitics.com/index.iml?Articie=227823

" Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller called on the governor to accept the concessions
offered by public employees, saying it's a comprcmlsethat "any good leader-should-be-
able to recognize and seize."

In the official Oem response to the guv's fireside chat, Miller, D-Monona, said the budget repair
bill was a "railroad" and Senate Oems left the state to use a "constitutional procedure" to allow the
pubiic's voice to be heard on the proposal.

"They have spoken loud and clear. They want to keep the rights that they have had for so long,"
Miller said from Illinois.

Assembly Democrats, meanwhile, called Gov. Walker's address tonighC'misleading," and said the
governor still refuses to acknowledge that union leaders have agreed to the benefit concessions
proposed in the budget repair bill.

"We haven't seen that tlie governor has been willing to listen to the tens of thousands of people
that have come to this building," said Rep. Donna Seidel, £:i-Wausau, in a press conference
responding to Waiker's address.

Subject: Separate the bill: pass collective bargaining piece NOW

Senators, A friend just heard Charles Krauthammer on TV supporting Governor Walker and indicating he
beiieves that we are winning. He aiso said that layoffs would be a strategic mistake.

However, he mentioned your ability to pass non-monetary bill. if you have the ability to pass.these bills without
having the democrats return, why not simply separate the budget repair bill, leave the fiscal part alone for the
moment and pass the part of the pill that will eliminate collective bargaining oniy at this time? I'd pretty much
guess that if you were to separate this bill into 2 parts and move to pass this part now, those cowards hiding
across the border would be forced to return!

Thanks for your consideration. If there's something that would disallow you from doing this with the bill, please let
me know.

SUbject: '(WisPolitics) Advisory -- Walker pitches austerity measures directly to the public -- 22 February
2011

WisPolitics Advisory
22 February 2011

Exclusively for WisPolitics Platlnurn-Subscrlbers

From WisPolitics.com ...

-- Gov. Scott Walker told Wisconsinites this evening that his austerity measures for
state employees were needed for the state to finally put its fiscal house in order and
avoid the mistakes of his predecessor in punting the problem onto others.

As a standoff with Senate Derns.finished its.sixth.day, Walker also warned of dire.


consequences if action is not taken soon on his budget repair bill, including layoffs.

"What we need now more than ever, is a commitment to the future," Walker said.

Walker has taken fire over the past week with critics questioning why he was pushing for
stripping public employees of almost all their collective bargaining rights as part of his budget
repair bill. They have also blasted him for failing to listen to the thousands who have protested
at the Capitol over the past week. .

But the guv described the protesters as an increasingly out-of-state lot and said he has,
listened to the average Wisconsinites that he's spoken with in recent days as he's traveled
around the state. He said his bill has been changed to address some of their concerns,
including the extension of civil service protections to local employees.

He promised those protections would remain, ensuring public employees' rights while
balancing their needs with those of taxpayers.

"This is a decision that Wisconsin will make," Walker said.

STRICTLY EMBARGOED UNTIL 6:10pm

Text of the Governor's Address


Madison-Belowls the text of Governor Walker's conversation about our current fiscal year challenges,
the divisions which have arisen over the past week and his positive vision for moving Wisconsin forward.

Good evening.

Wisconsin is showing the rest of the country how to have a passionate, yet civil debate about our
finances. That's a very Midwestern trait and something we should be proud of Ipray, however, that this
civfffty will continue as people pour into our state from all across America.

First, let me be clear: I have great respect for those who have chosen a career in government. I really do.

in 1985, when I was a high school junior in the small town of Delavan, I was inspired to pursue public
service after I attended the American Legion's Badger Boys State program. The military veterans and
educators who put on that week-long event showed the honor in serving others.

Tonight, I thank the 300,OOO-plus state and local government employees who showed up for work today
and did their jobs well. We appreciate it. If you take only one message away tonight, it's that we all
respect the work that you do.

I also understand how concerned many government workers are about their futures. I've listened to
their comments and read their emails.

I listened to the educator from Milwaukee who wrote to me about her concerns about the legislation
and what it might mean for her classroom.

That's why last week we agreed to make changes to the bill to address many of those issues.

And I listened to others like the correctional officer in Chippewa Falls who emailed me arguing that
'bargaining rights for public employee unions are the only way to ensure that workers get a fair say in
their working conditions.

I understand and respect those concerns. It's important to remember that many of the rights we're

4/12/2011
Page 2 of4

talking about don't come from collective bargaining. They come from the civil service system in
Wisconsin. That law was passed in 1905 (long before collective bargaining) and it will continue long
after our plan is approved.

You see, despite a lot of the rhetoric we've heard over the past 11 days the bill I put forward isn't aimed
at state workers, and it certainly isn't a battle with unions. If it was, we would have eliminated collective
bargaining entlrely or we would have gone after the private-sector unions.

But, we did not because they are our partners in economic development. We need them to help us put
250,000 people to work in the private sector over the next four years.

The legislation t've.put.forward.is about one thing. It's about balancing our budget now -- and in the
future. Wisconsin faces a 137 million dollar deficit for the remainder of this fiscal year and a 3.6 billion
dollar deficit for the upcoming budget.

Our bill is about protecting the hardworking taxpayer. It's about Wisconsin families trying to make ends
meet and help their children.

People like the woman from Wausau who wrote me saying "I'm a single parent of two children, one of
whom is autietlc.t havebeen-mttmotetv involved in my school district, but lcan nolonqerefford the
taxes I pay. I am in favor of everyone paying for benefits, as I have to."

It's also about the small business owner who told me about the challenges he faces just making payroll
each week. His employees PCw much larger premiums than we are asking because that's how they keep
the company going and thaeshow they protect their jobs.

. Or the substitute teacher here in Madison, who wrote to me last week about having to sit at home
unableto work because' her union had closed the school-down to-protest:

She sent me an email that went on to say, "I was given no choice in joining the union and I am forced to
pay dues ... I am missing out on pay today... Ifeel like I have no voice."

I assure you that she does have a voice.

And so does the factory worker in Janesville who was laid off nearly two years ago. He's a union guy in a
union town who asks simply why everyone else has to sacrifice except those in government.

Last week, I traveled the state visiting manufacturing plants and talking to workers - just like the guy
from Janesville. Many of them are paying twenty-five to fifty percent of their health care premiums.
Most, had 401k plans with limited or no match from the company.

My brother's in the same situation. He works as a banquet manager and occasional bartender at a hotel
.and my sister-in-law works for a department store. They have two beautiful kids.

In every way, they are a typical middle-class family here in Wisconsin. David mentioned to me that he
pays nearly $800 a month for his health insurance and the little he can set aside for his 401k.

4/12/2011
Page 3 of4

He -like so many other workers across Wisconsin - would love a deal like the benefits we are pushing in
this budget repair bill.

That's because what we are asking far is modest- at least to those outside of government.

Our measure asks for a 5.8% contribution to the pension and a 12.6% contribution for the health
insurance premium. Botn are well below the national average.

And this is just one part of our comprehensive plan to balance the state's 3.6 billion dollar budget
deficit.

.... Now.some hove.questioned why., we haveto.reform collective bargaining to balance the budget. The
answer is simple the system Is broken: it costs taxpayers serious money- particularly at the local/evel.
As a former county official, I know that first hand.

For years, I tried to use modest changes in pension and health insurance contributions as a means of
balancing our budget without massive layoffs or furloughs. On nearly every occasion, the local unions
(empowered by collective bargaining agreements) told me to go ahead and layoff workers. That's not
acceptable to me.

Here's another example: in Wisconsin, many local school districts are required to buy their health
insurance through the WEA Trust (which is the state teachers union's company). When our bill passes,
these school districts can opt to switch into the state plan and save $68 million per year. Those savings
could be used to pay for more teachers and put more money into the classroom to help our kids.

Some have also suggested that Wisconsin raise taxes on corporations and people with high-incomes.
Well -- Governor Doyle and the Legislature did that: two years ago. Infact they passed a budget-repair
bill (injust one day, mind vourthot includedabillion-dollar tax increase;'

Instead of raising taxes, we need to control government spending to balance our budget.

Two years ago, many of the same Senate Democrats who are hiding out in another state approved a
biennial budget that not only included higher taxes - it included more than two billion dollars in one-
time federal stimulus aid.

That money was supposed to be for one-time costs for things like roads and bridges. Instead, they used
it as a short-term fix to balance the last state budget. Not surprisingly, the state now faces a deficit for
. the remainder of this fiscal year and a 3.6 billion dollar hole for the budget starting July 1st.

What we need now more than ever, Is a commitment to thefuture.

As more and more protesters come in from Nevada, Chicago and elsewhere, I am notgoing to allow
their voices to overwhelm the voices of the millions of taxpayers from across the state who think we're
doing the right thing. This is a decision that Wisconsin will make.

Fundamentally, that's what we were elected to do. Make tough decisions. Whether we like the outcome.
or not, our democratic institutions callfor us to participate. That is why I am asking the missing Senators

4/12/2011
Page 4 of4

to come back to work.

Do the job you were elected to do. You don't have to like the outcome, or even vote yes, but as part of
the world's greatest democracy, you should be here, in Madison, at the Capitol.

The missing Senate Democrats must know that their failure to come to work will lead to dire
consequences very soan. Failure to act on this budget repair bill means (at least) 15 hundred state
employees will be laid off before the end ofJune. If there is no agreement by July Ist, another 5-6
thousand state workers -- as well as 5-6 thousand local government employees would be also laid off.

But, there is a way to avoid these layoffs and other cuts. The 14 State Senators who are staying outside
. oj.Wisconsin as we speak can come home and do their job.

We are broke because time and time again politicians of both parties ran from the tough decisions and
punted them down the road for another day. We can no longer do that, because, you see, what we're
really talking about today is our future.

The future of my children, of your children, of the children of the single mother from Wausau that I
mentioned earlier.

Like you, I want my two sons to grow up in a state at least as great as the Wisconsin I grew up in.

.. More than 162 years ago, our ancestors approved Wisconsin's constitution. They believed in the power
of hard work and determination and they envisioned a new state with limitless potential.

Ourfounders were pretty smart. They understood that it is through frugality and moderation in
government that we will see freedom and prosperity for our people.

Now is our time to once again seize that potential. We will do so at this turning point in our state's
history by restoring fiscal responsibility thatfosters prosperity for today - and for future generotions.

Thank you for joining me tonight. May God richly bless you and your family and may God continue to
bless the great State of Wisconsin.

Jennifer, this is personally from me and I am Ve1Y disappointed in your email to members sent on Friday.

My nnderstanding ofthe GMCC is that it was to represent all ofthe members arid help bring business to the area, I must
say that I have seen a shift to the progressive side by the Chamber and have not been happy with that shift. This, however,
is quite over the top. It certainly would have been better to keep silent. By the way, I would like to know how the state's
economy will be better off debating this for months on end and probably without an outcome needed to right this state.

We voters in the state have elected the Republicans to correct what has been happening to put us in this terrible situation.
I for one am tired of giving upthings and continuing to pay more to-the-publlcsectoremployees. I am sure that most of
the workers do a great job; there are many private sector employees doing a great job as well and who have sacrificed and
still pay more in taxes for the union workers and their increases;

I assume your email was approved by the board, or maybe not. You are certainly not representing MANY ofyour
members.

It is hard to contain my anger, frustration and disappointment personally. i realize my one voice means little, but I think
others are feeling the same way even if they do not let you know. .

By the way, how do you feel about the Dems running away? Considering your email, you probably think it is
appropriate. .

What is your position on the doctors writing bogus medical excuses? Do you think the teachers who use those excuses
should be fired? What a wonderful example the doctors and teachers am setting for the students. Are these the people we
want teaching our kids and taking care of us?

Who is going to clean up the capitol building?

The teachers union in Madison is determining what day the Madison Schools should open again. This is one ofthe
reasons this needs to stop. This is not for the employees; this is so the unions continue to be more powerful than the
people ofthis state and can bring in more money to support themselves. Things have been so one sided for so many years
something drastic has to happen.

Collective bargaining is not a right, it is a privilege that has been misused and abused 01' we would not be at this point.

balancing the budget.

"The legislation I've put forward is about one thing. It's about balancing our budget now and in
the future," Walker will say, according to excerpts of his speech his office released ahead of
the 6 p.m. TV address.

Walker also planned to recount how in 1985 he was inspired to public service during the

"showed the honor in service others." . .

-- Sen. Mark Miller will do a Oem response to the guv's speech, according to Oem aides.

Also, U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin, O-Madison, will be available in the North Hearing Room
along with Assembly Derns to offer their thoughts.

-- The Assembly late this afternoon was slowly working its way through dozens of Oem
amendments.

Things got off to a contentious start as Assembly Oems drew up a motion to remove Speaker
Pro Tern-Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, after Republlcane on-Friday tried te-move the-budget
repair bill to an unamendable stage without them on the floor. The motion was withdrawn, but
Minority Leader Peter Barca, O-Kenosha, said he'll bring back the anti-Kramer motion for a
vote if rules are violated again. .

"It is an outrage. It was a stain upon this body," Barca said.

4/12/2011
Page 2 of7

Barca said there were four violations of rules on Friday, including open meetings laws by
starting before the announced 5 p.m. start time and not recognizing members who indicate
they wanted to speak.

"They are expected to hold to the rules, the traditions, the customs of this body," he said.

Our.ing.his comments, Barca took offense to Rep. Kevin Peterson's reaction.

"You can laugh. 00 you think this is funny?" Barca said, and challenged Peterson, R-
Waupaca, to a debate at his local editorial board on the issue.

Peterson said he'd gladly accept the challenge, and said Barca was only engaging in more
stalling. tactics. . . .

"I see we're starting off on the right foot," Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald, R-Horicon, said.

Fitzgerald said this was "one more delay" from the Dems,

"I did the right thing and apparently I'm not going to get any credit," Fitzgerald said of his
agreement to move the bill back to the amendable stage. "Maybe we did start too early ... but
we took it back to the amendable stage."

-- In the Senate, Republicans began taking a series of steps designed to pressure Dems
to return to the Capitol as their boycott moved. into its sixth day•.

That included a warning from Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald that he- may-no lenger allow
Dern leaders to participate in Senate Org meetings via phone and a move to require missing
senators to pick up their paychecks in person on the Senate floor.

-- Sen. Mary Lazich this afternoon refused to allow Sen. Jon Erpenbach to vote via
phone in committee on legislation to require voters to show a photo ID at the polls.

In today's Transportation and Elections Committee exec, the Dern senator tried to ask several
questions about changes to the legislation included in a substitute amendment.

But Lazich, the committee chair, cut him off, asking,when he would return to the Capitol and
meet the call of the house issued last week.

Erpenbach reminded Lazich that she had often been afforded the courtesy of participating in
committee hearing while out of state via the phone. But Lazich said this was different because
there was an open call of the house.

"I won't extendcourtesies to unethlcalbebavior," Lazich said, her voice rising as she went
back and forth with Erpenbach.

She several times pushed him to say when he would return to the Capitol.

"How soon I can get there is up to your governor," Erpenbach shot back.

The bill was approved 3-0 by the three Republicans present.

-- Senate Org voted by paper ballot today 3-2 along party lines to require any senator
absent without leave for at least two days to pick up their paychecks, per diems or any
expense check in person on the chamber floor.

The ballot also suspends direct deposit for any lawmaker absent and specifies the majority
leader will only provide the checks to the missing senators and only on the Senate floor during
a session day.

See the results of the Org vote:

-- Fitzgerald also warned Dem leaders Mark Miller and Dave Hansen that he won't
tolerate any more speeches during Senate Org.

Fitzgerald, R-Juneau, opened Senate Org by telling the two Dems that being allowed to
participate in the meetings via phone during their self-imposed exile was a courtesy. But he
warned he would no longer extend that courtesy if they continued to use the committee as a
platform to make statements about the guv's budget repair bill.

"It's not a place for a statement about why you're out of state, why you're in Chicago,"
Fitzgerald told them today.

Hansen thanked Fitzgerald for the courtesy, but clarified-he's not in Chicago.

-- Senate brg approved a calendar for-tomorrow that lncludes.aresolutlon. ..


congratulating the Wisconsin Badgers and legislation to repeal a racial profiling law
approved by Dems last session.

-- Republican Rep. John Nygren of Marinette today called on Dem senators to return the
portion of their salaries for the days they've spent out of state boycotting a budget
repair bill vote.

Nygren particularly ripped Hansen, D-Green Bay, saying the "resounding messages" from his
constituents over the weekend were to continue fighting for taxpayers and to tell the Senate
Oems to get back to work. .

-- WEAC President Mary Bell says in new radio ads running in the districts of seven
Senate Republicans that "denying workers their voice goes too far."

"We must retain our voice because a teacher's working conditions are a child's learning
conditions," Bell says in the spots.

Bell says if teachers lose their voice, decisions will be dictated by politicians without input from
educations who work with students.

spots. "It's time for you to step up and show leadership to represent the working families of

help to run two TV ads boosting. Walker's austerity measures.

In one, dubbed "Stay the Course," the narrator says Walker campaigned on making

interests don't like it.

.lo.the other, the narrator says people.allacross Wisconsin are making concession to keep
their jobs, but public employees haven't had to sacrifice. The narrator says public employees
pay "next-to nothing" for their penslons and a fraction of their health care costs: It urges
viewers to call their legislators and support the budget repair bill.

"It's time for state employees to pay their, fair share, just like the-rest-of-us," the-spot-concludes,

-- The CFG also is running radio ads targeting Dem Sen. Bob Wirch of Kenosha and is
doing robocalls in some Dem senators' districts.

It declined to release the spots or the robocalls.

-- Rep. Gordon Hintz clarified today that he was never asked to turn over any money for
a bond of the municipal ordinance violation he now faces.

Various media reported yesterday that Hintz had paid a $2,667.50 bond, citing on-line court
records. But Hintz's office pointed out the CCAP page also shows Hintz has paid no deposit
and said the bond is the maximum penalty he could face.

Hintz has a court hearing set for 8:30 a.m. April 27.

""bargaining fiscally impacts government.

Example #1 Paid-Time Off for Union Activities


In Milwaukee County alone, because the union collectively bargained for paid time off, fourteen
employees receive salary and benefits for doing union business. of the fourteen, three are on full-time
release for union business. Milwaukee County spent over $170,000 in salary alone for these employees
to only participate in union activities such as collective bargaining.

Example #2 Surrender of Management Rights


Because of collecting bargaining, unions have included provisions in employee contracts that have a
direct fiscal impact such as not allowing management to schedule workers based on operational needs
and requiring notice and approval by the union prior to scheduling changes. As county executive,
Walker attempted to reduce work hours based on budget pressures and workload requirements by
instituting a 35-hour work week. to- avoid layoffs, whlch.theunlon. opposed. Additiof.1ally, government
cannot explore privatization of functions that could save taxpayers money.

-- Sen. Mary Lazich this afternoon refused to allow Sen. Jon Erpenbach to vote via
phone in committee on legislation to require voters to show a photo 10 at the polls.

It was another sign of the escalating steps Republicans have taken in an attempt to force
Oems to return to the Capitol from their boycott. In Senate.Org, Majority Leader-Scott
Fitzgerald has allowed his Oem counterparts to vote on the calendar via phone, though he
warned today that he may no longer extend that courtesy.

Meanwhile in the Assembly, voting has begun on Democrats"proposed amendments to the


budget repair bill. . .

Response to DPW lie

Madison-Today the Democratic Party of Wisconsin held a press conference to spread-a lie about
Governor Walker stifling debate. DPW claimed Governor Walker blocked the website
www.defendwisconsin.com from internet access at the Capitol.

The Department of Administration blocks all new websites shortlyafter they are created, until they go
through a software approval program that unblocks them. Within 30 minutes of being notified this
website was blocked, DOA circumvented the software and immediately made the website accessible.

In response to DPW's lie, Governor Walker's spokesman, Cullen Werwie, released the following
statement:

Over the last week and a half Governor Walker has repeatedly talked about protestors having every
right to have their voice heard. Hoursfor the State Capitol have been-changed to-allow protestors
extensive access to the statehouse to voice their opinion.

Debate and participation in the democratic process are good for our state. Senate Democrats should
try it out.

The Democratic Party should spend less time lying about Governor Walker, and more time trying to get
their AWOL State Senators back to Wisconsin. Of course DPW won't do that because they are using the
Senate Democrat's taxpayer funded vacation to I/linoisto fill their campaign coffers:

Subject: ICYMI: Indiana Democrats Fiee Their House

ICYMI: Democrats across the country are fleeing rather than casting votes

stop-votes?odyssey=modl breakinqltextllndyStar.com

House Democrats are leaving the state rather than vote on anti-union legislation, The
Indianapolis Star has learned.

A source' said Democrats 'are headed to Illinois, though it was possible some also might go to .
Kentucky. They need to go to a state with a Democratic governor to avoid being taken into
police custody and returned to Indiana.

The House was came into session this,morning, with. only two otthe 40 Democrats..present
Those two were needed to make a motion, and a seconding motion, for any procedural steps
. D,emocrats would want to take to ensure Republicans don't do anything official without
quorum.

With only 58 legislators present, there was no quorum present to do business. The House
needs 67 of its members to be present

Rep. Terri Austin, D-Anderson, told House Speaker Brian Bosma, R-Indianapolis, that
Democrats "continue to be in caucus" to discuss potential amendments to several. bills.

Bosma said he was "flummoxed," adjoured until noon, and labor union members watching in
the gallery and hallway outside cheered the work stoppage.

Today's fight was triggered by Republicans pushing. a bill.that would bar unions. and ...
companies from negotiating a contract that requires non-union members to kick-in fees for
representation. It's become the latest in what is becoming a national fight over Republican
attempts to eliminate or limit collective bargaining.

House Minority Leader B. Patrick Bauer, D-South Bend, "has taken a page out ofthe

4/1 ?I?011
Page 2 of2

Wisconsin Senate playbook apparently" by keeping his caucus in hiding, Bosma said. "They
are shirking the job that they were hired to do."

In Wisconsin, Senate Democrats have fled to Illinois to deny Republicans the quorum they
need to pass legislation limiting collective bargaining for many public employees.

Asked at what point he would call in the Indiana State Police to attempt to round up the
Democrats, Bosma said: "We'll see how the day goes."

Gov. Mitch Daniels had said he supports the policy his party is pursuing in this legislation, but
said earlier that this is not the year to do it with so many other critical legislation in the works,
including his education reform agenda.

Bosma said he spoke to Daniels and said the governor is "very supportive of our position to
come in and try to do our work. He was not pleased that the Democrats weren't here to do
their work. And like me is just waiting to see how the course of the day proceeds."

Austin told reporters that "it doesn't matter where they (Democrats) are at this point. What
matters is that they're trying to figure out a way to save the state from this radical agenda."

Asked if they were in the state, Austin said only: "They're working hard."

The last time a prolonged walk-out happened in the Indiana legislature was in the mid-1990s,
when Republicans were in control and tried to draw new legislative district maps, eliminating a
district that likely would have been a Democrat one, in the middle of the decade. Democrats
won that standoff, staying away several days until Republicans dropped the plan.

Government workers have taken to the streets in Madison, Wise, to battle-a series· of reforms-proposed-by Gov.
Scott Walker that include allowing workers to opt out of paying dues to unions. Everywhere that this "opt out"
idea has been proposed, unions have battled it vigorously because the money they collect from dues is at the heart
of their power.

What's the matter with Wisconsin?

Wisconsin's public employee unions are doing a lousy job of being villains. They're willing to have their salaries

maintain the right to collective bargaining.

For Wisconsin unions, a telling concession


Washington Post .
Looks to me as if Wisconsin's union leaders have revealed their preference for political power. They want to
preserve collective bargaining at all costs, because without it they will lose the flow of dues money. And without
dues money, the unions have no political war chests, and without political war chests, they are no longer power
brokers in state and local elections.

Silbject: Collective Bargaining is a Fiscal Issue: Part2

February 22, 2011


For Immediate Release
Contact: Cullen Werwie, 608-267-7303

Collective Bargaining is a Fiscal Issue: Part 2


Madison-Today Governor Walker's office released more specific examples to show how collective
bargaining fiscally impacts government.

Example #1 Paid-Time off for Union Activities


In Milwaukee County alone, because the union collectively bargained for paid time off, fourteen
employees receive salary and benefits for doing union business. Of the fourteen, three are on full-time
release for union business. Milwaukee County spent over $170,000 in salary alone for these
employees to only participate in union activities such as collective bargaining.

Example #2 Surrender of Management Rights


Becauseof collecting bargaining, unions have included provisions in employee contracts that have a
direct fiscal impact such as not allowing management to schedule workers based on operational needs
and requiring notice and approval by the union prior to scheduling changes" As-eountyexecutive,
Walker attempted to reduce work hours based on budget pressures and workload requirements by
instituting a 35-hour work week to avoid layoffs, which the union opposed. Additionally, government
cannot explore privatization of functions that could save taxpayers money.

Along with this release Governor Walker's spokesman, Cullen Werwie, released the following
statement:

unfortunately far the millions of taxpayers wha are currently paying these Senators' salaries and
benefits, Senator Jufie Lasso and her 13 colleagues decided to take a 6 day vacatian to I1finois to get 'to
know a lot of my fellow caucus members.'

While Senate Democrats are getting acquainted with each other in another state, Governor Walker is in
Wisconsin working to balance the state budget. Senators should return to Wisconsin and make their
voice heard through the democratic process by casting their votes.

SUbject: ICYMI: Burlington residents to Sen. Wirch: Go back to Madison and vote

Burlington residents to Sen. Wirch: Go back to


Madison and vote
http://m.joumaltimes.com/news/local!govt-and-politics/article_2280b4c8-3e79-l1 eO-960a-
001cc4c03286.html

BURLINGTON - Cheryl Herrick, 51, of Burlington, has a message for her "missing" state senator, Sen.
Robert Wirch, D-Pleasant Prairie. "Comeback and vote,"said Herrick, who works in retail. "Elections.
have consequences."

Wirch, who represents Burlington and most of Kenosha County, is one of the 14 senate Democrats who
fled Madison last week when the state Senate was scheduled to take a vote on Gov. Scott Walker's
proposal to essentially eliminate collective bargaining for public workers.

Wirch has not returned calls for comment for several days.

In downtown Burlington on Monday, the consensus among area residents selected at random was that
Wirch should go back and vote. Many, including Herrick, said they would like to see Wirch recalled for
avoiding his vote. By running away, he is not doing his job, said Kellie Kerkman, 39, of Burlington.

"All I see is this teaching our younger generation to run away from problems. It's time to grow up," said
Kerkman, who owns Kerkman's SplitEnds, a hair salon at 316 N Pine St.

Down the street, Carl Schultz, 61, of Twin Lakes, said Wirch should be fired for avoiding "his
responsibility. "

He recalled firing a worker from his car part manufacturing business, Five Star Fabricating, for
repeatedly missing work after receiving multiple warnings, he said.

"If they are hired to do ajob, they should be there," said Schultz, who feels that way about his
employees and his state legislators.

And the possibility of a recall may become a reality.

Dan Hunt, 51, of Pleasant Prairie, where Wirch lives, is looking into forming a committee to recall the
senator. So far he has 175 volunteers who have signed up to help circulate petitions to recall Wirch, he
said as of Monday afternoon, but he said he would need about 300 volunteers to successfully launch a
campaign. According to the Govemment Accountability Board he would need about 15,000 signatures
for a recall election.

AH ..... I ..... A.11


Page 20f2

For now, Hunt said, he is waiting to see ifWirch goes back to vote.

"The longer he stays away, the greater the likelihood," Hunt said of a recall effort.

While it appears in downtown Burlington there is support for a recall, Tony Watson, 30, of Burlington,
said he for one would not sign a recall petition for Wirch. Watson said most people in the Burlington
area support Walker's..proposal. But he works at Nestle and among his co-workers there is a lot of
concern about the governor's proposal, he said. People wonder what might eventually happen for unions
like theirs, he said.

Instead of recalling Wirch, Watson said he would support recalling Walker. But he would have to wait
until January for that to happen.

Collective Bargaining is a Fiscal Issue Part 2


Madlson-eTodav Governor Walker's office released more specific examples to show how collective
bargaining fiscally impacts government.

Example #1 Paid-Time off for Union Activities


jn Milwaukee County alone, because the union collectively bargained for paid time off, fourteen
employees receive salary and benefits for doing union business. Of the fourteen, three are on full-time
release for union business. Milwaukee County spent over $170,000 in salary alone for these employees
to only participate in union activities such as collective bargaining.

Example #2 Surrender of Management Rights


Because of collecting bargaining, unions have induded provisions in employee contracts that have a
direct fiscal impact such as not allowing management to schedule workers based on operationa I needs
and requiring notice and approval by the union prior to scheduling changes. As County Executive
Walker attempted to reduce work hours based on budget pressures and workload requirements by
instituting a 35 hour work week to avoid layoffs, which the union opposed. Additionally, government
cannot explore privatization offunctions that could save taxpayers money.

Along with this release Governor Walker's spokesman, Cullen Werwie, released the following
statement:

We could be engaging in a healthy debate in Madison about the fiscal impact collective bargaining has
Page 20f2

on all levels of qovemment, if the Senate Democrats weren't vacationing in Illinois. Unfortunately for the
millions of taxpayers who are currently paying these Senators' salaries and benefits, Senator Julie Lassa
and her 13 calleagues decided ta take a 6 day vacation to Illinois to get 'to know a lot of my fellow
caucus members. '

While Senate Democrats are getting acquainted with each other in another state, Governor Walker is In
. Wisconsin working to balance the state budqet. Senators should return to Wisconsin and make their
voice heard through the democratic process by casting their vote.

Collective Bargaining is a Fiscal Issue Part 2


Madison-Today Governor Walker's office released more specific examples to show how collective
bargaining fiscally impacts government.

Example #1 Paid-Time off for Union Activities


In Milwaukee County alone, because the union collectively bargained for paid time off, fourteen
employees receive salary and benefits for doing union business. Ofthe fourteen, three are on full-time
release for union business. Milwaukee County spent over $170;000-in'salary-alone'for these-employees
to only participate in union activities such as collective bargaining.

Example #2 Surrender of Management Rights


Because of collecting bargaining, unions have included provisions in employee contracts that have a
direct fiscal impact such as not allowing management to schedule workers based on operational needs
and requiring notice and approval by the union prior to scheduling changes. As County Executive
Walker attempted to reduce work hours based on budget pressures and workload requirements by
instituting a 35 hour work week to avoid layoffs, which the union opposed. Additionally, government
cannot explore privatization of functions that could save taxpayers money.

Along with this release Governor Walker's spokesman, Cullen Werwie, released the following

statement:

Unfortunately for the millions of taxpayers who are currently paying these Senators' salaries and
benefits, Senator Julie Lassa and her 13 colleagues decided to take a 6 day vacation to Illinois to get 'to
know a lot of my fellow caucus members.' .

While Senate Democrats are getting acquainted with each other in another state, Governor Walker is in
Wisconsin working to balance the state budget. Senators should return to Wisconsin and moke their
voice heard through the democratic process by casting their vote.
