It has now been two years since the adoption of Wisconsin Act 10. Now that the dust has cleared, what do we know about the law's financial and programmatic impacts on local governments and school districts? Has the strife that surrounded Act 10 subsided, and what are the lasting political ramifications. As part of our respective 100th anniversary celebrations, the Public Policy Forum and Milwaukee Rotary Club jointly hosted a pair of back-to-back luncheons to revisit and shed light on the impacts of Wisconsin Act 10.

On March 12th, we recieved a firsthand account of the Act 10 battle and reflections on its consequences from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel statehouse reporters Patrick Marley and Jason Stein, authors of a soon-to-be-released book entitled More than They Bargained For: Scott Walker, Unions and the Fight for Wisconsin. Forum President Rob Henken will moderate the discussion.
