DescriptionMADISON (WKOW) -- Secretary of State Doug La Follette said he rescinded the publication date of Governor Walker's controversial collective bargaining bill, and said the bill's progression into law through another publication route was not prudent.

La Follette's remarks came after a hearing into a judge's restraining order against the bill progressing -- a hearing focused so far solely on Friday's publication of the bill by the legislative reference bureau. Publication is the last step in the process of a bill having the power of law.
