Anyone who has taken a high school history course in the United States knows how how laws are supposed to be made. An elected representative introduces a bill, which is identified by title, the legislature holds a public hearing to solicit comment and input, and then, after deliberation, the bill may be amended to address public concerns, and then is either adopted into law or rejected. That’s the theory, but in practice, legislators skirt these rules all the time. Since Republicans took over both houses of the Wisconsin legislature in 2010, more and more laws are passed in secret, with no sponsor, and no public input. That’s the conclusion of a recent report by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism. WCIJ Managing Editor Dee Hall joined Buzz host Brian Standing on Monday, November 5, 2018.
