Listen: Supreme Court, Governor Walker And Legislature discussed on Mark Belling
"To the next one after that, the state supreme court, not surprisingly says it's going to take the case of those challenges through the so-called lame-duck legislation passed by the Wisconsin legislature and signed by governor Walker in November and December of last year. This is the legislation that was passed after the election before the new governor a new large legislature was sworn in. Several Madison judges struck down the legislation, including a number of appointments that were made by the governor to state agencies and commissions and appeals court to appeals courts in and seemed to rule to override the lower courts. But this is left in a gray area. What happens to the appointments given that totally Evers went and made his own appointments after the first courts ruled that sounded confusing. Let me go slower. Follow the tabloid Walker makes appointments to state, boards and commissions and agencies and cabinet positions. Etc. Lefty, judge strikes down everything that the legislature and governor did Iverson comes in and makes new appointments. State appeals court comes in and overturns the lower court said so whose appointment stand the original ones by Walker. Given the fact that the appeals court said that the governor had the right to make the appointments or. Do the Iverson appointment stand? Given the fact that the positions were vacant at the time that Everts made the appointment given the fact that the lower court ruling had not yet been overturned, obviously, this is the kind of thing state supreme court has to rule out not with regard to the legislation that was passed as opposed to the appointments. I am confident that the state supreme court will uphold the legislation. The Dane county judges that struck them down were simply being they were again acting totally politicized. The legislature and governor can act in this state just as the congress and president had act so long as they're in power. We've had presidents of the United States of both parties. And in fact, the last major legislation that I can recall being done was being done at the end of Obama dealt with the financial crisis where Republicans in congress and Obama agreed to pass significant legislation before Trump K bid. It wasn't all that controversial at the time. But it was. If the founding fathers nationally, and the framers of the Wisconsin constitution and our state wanted to make it illegal for anybody to do any governing after an election. They would've put that in there. You're in power until your term is up like it or not and the new people can come in and change any law that the last one's past that standing the obvious. So I believe that there's almost no chance. The state supreme court is not going to rule in favor of the legislation that was passed as for the appointments that one's a gray area to be one"
