I just copied that headline verbatim from jsonline…well except for the exclamation point…that’s mine.
From the short article:
The state agency (Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development), which administers taxpayer-funded job retraining funds, said it expects to award a contract to develop an online database and job matchmaking service to Boston-based Burning Glass Technologies.

Future of Public Education in the Balance
Governor Walker’s budget proposal represents yet another radical break from Wisconsin tradition that will dramatically affect educators and students for years to come. Final decisions on the two-year budget are likely to be made within the [...]
Milwaukee Budget Hearing this Saturday
I am chairing a public hearing this Saturday, April 20, to provide Milwaukee residents an opportunity to voice their opinions on the state budget. Other members of the Joint Finance Committee and area lawmakers will be there to listen as well. The public meeting starts at 11:00 a.m. [...]
Most readers of this blog are probably aware that Governor Scott Walker has included a ban on local residency requirements as part of his next biennial budget for 2013-2015. And of course this has resulted in any number of complaints from both the left and the right.

This is well worth a read…
Dear Gov. Walker,
Ever since the recall election, the media has worked to paint a curious portrait of you as some kind of “moderate,” stressing always your someday-hopes of a bid at the presidency — assuming all that John Doe stuff goes away. Just this week, USA Today even [...]
