DA charges GOP with open meetings violation in conference committee vote

The Dane County district attorney has charged Republicans with violating the state's open meeting law when they held a conference committee meeting to ram through a union-busting "budget review" bill last week.

The likely outcome, if they're convicted, will be fines, but the court probably would not invalidate the committee's action. In any case, the Republicans have the majority they need to pass it again, if need be.

The press release offers no details.
