2 buses of police arrive at Wisconsin Capitol before rally

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Police officers plan to close the Wisconsin state Capitol as usual after a hearing on a right-to-work bill that's scheduled to go into the early evening.

Department of Administration spokesman Cullen Werwie said Tuesday that the plan is to operate the Capitol as normal when a legislative committee is meeting. The public will be able to come and go throughout the hearing, but once it is over Werwie says the public will have to leave.

Two buses of police officers from the Wisconsin State Patrol, Capitol Police and Department of Natural Resources arrived at the Capitol just before it opened to the public Tuesday.

A bomb-sniffing dog went through the hearing room and police were seen throughout the building.

A noontime rally is planned by opponents of the bill.
