Bill curbing collective-bargaining rights advances in Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Assembly has passed legislation that would curb collective-bargaining rights for most public employees, including teachers, and the bill will now go to the Senate for a vote. Democrats in that body, however, have fled the state in an effort to stall the vote indefinitely. Democratic lawmakers in the Assembly drafted an alternative to Gov. Scott Walker's proposals that would maintain cost-cutting measures, but keep collective bargaining intact. Republicans quickly turned it down. Yahoo!/The Associated Press, The Wall Street Journal
