    Wisconsin ends political-correctness attack on school mascots

    Bill: AB297 (PDF)

    Sponsored by Reps. Craig, Nass, et al., and signed into law in 2013 by Gov. Scott Walker, AB297 (Public Act No.115) requires that individuals objecting to a race-based nickname, logo, mascot, or team name must collect signatures prior to submitting a complaint to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Moreover, a complaint must include a number of electors’ signatures that is equal to at least 10% of the school district’s membership. In addition, AB297 specifies that a petition signature is valid only if it was obtained within the 120-day period before the complaint is filed.

    Wisconsin to stop activist judges from blocking state laws

    Bill: AB161 (PDF)

    Sponsored by Rep. David Craig, AB161 states that any judicial injunction that suspends or restrains the enforcement of any state statute will be immediately appealable to an appellate court or to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. If a petition for interlocutory review is filed within ten days after the entry of the order, the judge’s order is stayed.
