Wis. Democrat sees more challenges to union bill


Madison, WI (AP) -- A Democratic leader says more legal challenges are possible in an effort to stop a bill that would strip most Wisconsin public employees of collective bargaining rights.

Assembly Minority Leader Peter Barca of Kenosha says Democratic Secretary of State Doug La Follette could aid help by delaying publishing the bill, the last step before it becomes state law. Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed the bill Friday morning. La Follette can wait 10 days to publish it.

Barca also defended his call for the removal of Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald of Horicon on Thursday. Barca says Fitzgerald violated the law to "push through a bill the people don't want."
