Will The Fleebaggers Flee Again?
A Wisconsin judge has issued a temporary restraining order against the new collective-bargaining reform law, saying that it didn’t meet the open meetings law, which requires 24 hours notice. This would seem to be a shaky ruling, because the Clerk of the Senate has already said that the way the law was enacted was legal. However, one of the legal eagles over at The Volokh Conspiracy says that all they will need to do if the eventual ruling is to strike down the law is to re-enact the law, which they can do now that they have a quorum.
The Fleebaggers originally fled to keep the State Senate from having a quorum, since they need 20 for a quorum, and the GOP only holds 19 seats. So, are the Fleebaggers now packing their bags and preparing to flee again, to prevent a quorum?
