GOP: who needs local government (autonomy ) - it's SICK

From click on Title ... or here ... Tuesday, April 12, 2011 ... May be there was another reason that JFC did not want protracted meetings in West Allis - you never learn anything in Legislative Caucus Meetings ... where are Open Meetings Laws when you need them!

 6:27 PM  Bill to override sick leave ordinance headed to governor

From source ... 
The Assembly has concurred in SB 23, which would pre-empt local governments from requiring employers to provide leave to deal with family, medical or health issues -- including the city of Milwaukee's sick leave ordinance. ...
Rep. Terese Berceau, D-Madison, said voters are increasingly afraid of GOP proposals, likening the caucus to "a cult" and "Night of the Living Dead."

When Speaker Pro Tempore Bill Kramer interjected to ask if Berceau was calling the Republicans zombies, she responded, "That would be a compliment."

As a fair point statewide policies have been passed by both parties (maybe even bipartisan) ... but think about the contradictions ... keeping people from being sick or making others sick (smoking legislation) versus keeping someone from being able to care of their family!  I think that is the difference ... there may be other examples?!
