Walker, DOA Sec. Huebsch Back Down

From Mary Spicuzza (WSJ):

State Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch said Thursday he thinks the law is in full force, but agreed to stop implementing it.

"While I believe the budget repair bill was legally published and is indeed law, given the most recent court action we will suspend the implementation of it at this time," Huebsch said. "DOA will continue to abide by the court orders, like the department has done all throughout this process."

Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca, D-Kenosha, said the judge's latest order has "taken away their last excuse."

"I can only hope today's amended order is crystal clear enough for them to stop disregarding the rule of law," he said.
