Wisconsin politics



A W$J editorial says prospective opponents of Gov. Jim Doyle are going to make sure the liability issue stays on the front burner in his re-election bid:

Scott Walker, the Milwaukee County Executive, put tort reform into a hundred-day plan he announced within days of the Governor's vetoes.

Congressman Mark Green, who is also running for the Republican nomination, was equally emphatic. "People in Wisconsin are blue-collar conservatives. They don't believe in the lawsuit lottery. They want to see our manufacturing economy grow. The lead paint decision could spell disaster for Wisconsin." Both candidates noted that the lead paint decision has potential ramifications for anyone who makes things. Its impact is not likely to be limited to the paint industry.
