Update on the Resolution

On Thursday, Sept. 7, Dane County Supervisor Al Matano made a motion to withdraw Res 35 from the committees. If successful, this would have sent the Resolution back to the full Board of Supervisors for consideration. They voted down his motion on Thursday, September 16.

You can read local coverage of the vote at the Cap Times blog and a surprisingly good article from student reporter Jennifer Zettel at the Badger Herald.
