Madison.com has this on the Wisconsin's legislature's attempt to drastically cut back on openness in the state. The legislature had introduced amendments to its omnibus budget that would have drastically cut back on transparency in the state government. After a huge outcry from all parts of the political spectrum, the amendments have been taken out of the bill.
Ironically, it isn't clear who (members of the legislature or the governor or a mix) is the guiding force behind the bill. If the bill had passed, it would have likely been an issue in the upcoming Presidential Election now that Wisconsin's governor is set to join the list of candidates.
