Capitol closed to public; new rules tighten access


Madison – The Capitol is shut down to visitors from the public Monday morning, with only staff and media being allowed inside.

The state Department of Administration tightened rules on access to the statehouse Monday morning after deciding the night before not to force out hundreds of demonstrators who were camped out in the rotunda. Some of those protesters from the weekend are still in the building.


So IOW, all the blustering that one police officer about disobeying the Gov. was just that.
