UPDATE: Walker signs bill lifting Family Care cap

Posted:
MADISON (AP) -

Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that lifts an enrollment cap his administration put in place on the Family Care program that's designed to keep elderly people out of nursing homes.

Walker instituted the cap last year as a way to save money on the rapidly expanding program. But he agreed to lift it after being ordered by the federal government to remove it.

The governor also signed a bill in Milwaukee Monday that spells out when public school employees can physically restrain or seclude students.

The bill says a student must present a clear and immediate danger to themselves or to others to be physically restrained.
