Rules on ending collective bargaining to be included in state budget

Republicans will place item in budget if not ruled on by Supreme Court by tomorrow

Just posted minutes ago at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
The Legislature will put Gov. Scott Walker’s limits on collective bargaining into the state budget Tuesday if the state Supreme Court hasn’t ruled on the matter by then, Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald (R-Horicon) said Monday.

“If need be, we are going to have to pass collective bargaining again,” Fitzgerald said at a Capitol news conference. “My caucus is more solid on that collective bargaining vote than they ever have been.”
What's worse, the state legislature is set to enter an "extraordinary session," which means that meetings don't have to be announced under the rules they're normally run by.

And oh, hey, remember when non-fiscal matters in a budget were considered a sinful act? Yeah, neither does the state GOP.

Disgraceful. But not shocking.
