Date set for collective bargaining law to take effect


by Laura Matovina

MADISON -- Wisconsin's Secretary of State has now set a date for the publishing of the controversial collective bargaining law.

The Secretary of State will publish the law on June 28 and it will take effect June 29.

The state Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday, to overturn a Dane County judge's decision to stop the law from taking effect.

Protesters in Madison exploded when the ruling was learned just before 5:00.

The Secretary of State says he'll treat the law as if it had just passed, publishing it under the normal 10-day deadline.

Public workers will start paying more for health care and pension benefits in late August.
